Synopsis:
Making his only major film appearance, legendary soul singer, musician and composer Ray Charles helps transform the lives of a blind boy and his widowed mother in this poignant, uplifting film drama set in mid-1960's London. 'Ballad in Blue' sees Charles - who had lost his sight completely by the age of eight - performing some of his best-loved songs, including 'I Got a Woman', 'Hit the Road', 'Jack' and 'Busted'. During a performance for blind children, global star Ray Charles befriends David (Piers Bishop), a young boy who has recently lost his sight, and tries to help him come to terms with his condition.
Then, during a world tour, Charles finds himself in Paris, where a surgeon is pioneering a radical procedure that could restore David's sight; he sets out not only to convince David's over-protective mother to allow her son to undergo the surgery, but also to reconcile her with her boyfriend, a struggling composer who seeks solace in alcohol.
