The Maestro is a loving tribute to the cult classics of the past, but also an exploration into deep philosophical issues about the nature of art. Conceived by acclaimed filmmaker Paul Spurrier and bestselling author and musician S.P. Somtow, The Maestro will be shot with the speed and energy of the classic thrillers while maintaining the wild inventiveness, ironic tone and relentless imagery that made those films immortal.

The story of a genius provoked and pushed into madness and beyond, The Maestro tells the story of Arun, a composer and conductor who tried to make it in Europe but has ended up teaching high society children in a Thai shopping mall. For years, he has been composing a magnum opus, The Tongues of Angels, and dreams of premiering it under his own baton. It is a work of transcendence, of wildness … and a touch of madness.
