A guitar takes a journey. It travels from the streets of Dublin to my heart via the medium of film. In the hands of one passionate singer-songwriter, it sings of loneliness, of love, of possibility. This guitar makes me want to be a better musician, to live more passionately, to smile at the simple things. This guitar is witness to the connection between two people. It creates music that echoes from within the void in my heart. It makes me cry and yearn and ache, but also search and wonder and find.

Is there anything more beautiful, more ethereal, more powerful than two voices, a guitar, and music that weaves their lives together?

Run out and rent Once.  Seriously.
