    • Sam is a bewitching blues-jazz singer. Sadly, since his wife passed away, he can no longer sing nor smile. He spends his nights in the hotel room where they first met, waiting for her phone call that will never come. He hardly sees anyone except his best friend George, the hotel desk clerk.
      One of these nights, a girl, running away from an insistent pursuer, rushes into Sam’s room and locks herself in his bathroom. As mysterious as her mathematical name, Pi asks Sam to sing a lullaby to comfort her. And as Sam thought he would never sing to an audience again, he starts to sing. to this girl behind his closed bathroom door.
      From this magical moment on, night after night, Sam and Pi open up their hearts through the closed bathroom door. And day after day, thanks to William, a black teenager, a slam poetry singer Sam took under his wing, Sam brings his bookshop back to life and goes back on stage to be reborn in music.
      With a whole new life to share with others – and the help of his benevolent cupid George - Sam will eventually find a way to Pi and puzzle out her mystery.
