Mozart's magic flute has nothing on the fine fiddle Darius Dorian comes across when he's paired with Archibald Archinola for a school project. Encased in a glass curio in the violinmaker's studio sits a peculiar violin that proves to have the power to heal and the power to create a good bit of havoc. As an orphan at Stork's Nest Children's Home, it's a fact that Darius often gets the short end of the stick. He's familiar with hand-me-downs and handouts, and he took his fair share of ribbing after his nemesis and fellow orphan Max draws a Porsche dealership for the same three-week assignment. Though in a string of events and enviable action, Darius goes on the adventure of a lifetime and, for once, it's Darius who gets to call the shots and pull a few strings when a greedy doctor sets his sights on the magic violin.
