The mysterious old mansion on the hill has a new occupant, and the people of Castle Gate are distrustful of the disfigured man known simply as Ribaldi. When young Bonnie goes to work at the mansion, she discovers that Ribaldi has a wonderful singing voice and is a master teacher of the art. As he teaches Bonnie to sing, her kindness melts the protecting ice aroundhis heart to reveal goodness and a rare wisdom that has been buried for years. One by one, children in the town come to know Ribaldi, discovering that beneath the strange countenance is a beautiful soul. But, feeding on rumors, other people's prejudice against Ribaldi grows. And as it does, the story builds to an exciting climax and a very intriguing finish. This motion picture has some of the most beautiful singing you'll ever hear.

Producers: Don A. Judd & Scott Swofford
