Pianist David Helfgott, pushed to the limit by his father and teachers, has a breakdown. Years later he returns to the piano, to popular acclaim. Shine won actor Geoffrey Rush dozens of awards, including the Academy Award, the Golden Globe and BAFTA! Special screening in honor of the Australian actor, who is a special guest and the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at TIFF 2023!

David Helfgott is a gifted pianist. However, his promising talent never reached the heights that experts, including his father, expected him to achieve. Shine is, at times, like a slow-motion car crash, almost too painful to watch. In his childhood, David was regarded as the most talented pianist of his generation. However, his talent withered under the formidable pressure exerted by his father, a man who lost both of his parents in concentration camps and undoubtedly loves his child but has no clue how to understand him and channel his talent. The father's mistakes, however, destroy his son's budding career.
