Sarah MacDougall is a disenfranchised 12-year-old girl who is visited by the ghost of Beethoven because he can’t stand the way she is destroying his music at the piano. Both her mom and her music teacher have failed to raise her musical interest level. Meanwhile, her friends have been trying to lure her to the soccer field or to practice gymnastics — without much response. It’s the power of music and Beethoven’s bombastic belligerence which shakes Sarah out of her doldrums and leads her into a local piano competition where she plays his Moonlight Sonata. Sarah is rejuvenated by these life experiences and is finally able to celebrate with her friends on the soccer field.
