- Tells the tale of an extraordinary man who lives a remarkable life without setting foot on land. Abandoned atop a piano and raised by a lowly crew member in the bowels of a luxurious cruise ship, the boy is dubbed 1900 for the year he was born. As he grows up, he is drawn to the piano and discovers he has an amazing gift for creating music. His reputation spreads, but he refuses to leave the ship. Only when he spots a beautiful girl on-board does he try to join the outside world and live a normal life.
