An investigation into the world of a man, Dr. P, with visual agnosia, or 'mental blindness' due to damage of the visual parts of the brain. Such patients 'see but do not see.' They see colors, lines, boundaries, simple shapes, patterns, movement-but they are unable to recognize, or find sense in, what they see. They cannot recognize people or places or common objects. They visual world is no longer meaningful or familiar, but strange, abstract, chaotic, mystifying. In the case of Dr. P, a gifted performer, his exceptional musical ability allows him, in large measure, to return sense to the world by putting it and his actions into music.
