For the Left Hand documents the life of Norman Malone who, at the age of ten, was attacked by his father and left paralyzed on his right side. Undaunted, he began a lifelong quest to reclaim his place at the piano, mastering some of the most difficult music ever written for left hand alone–and never telling anyone of his deepening virtuosity. Not until he was 78 did Malone reveal his story. Nearly 70 years after his tragic attack, Malone realizes a long-delayed dream–to play with an orchestra.
