Can a song in your heart actually make you grow?

At 4'4 ", Lionel was the world’s tiniest tenor. At the age of 18, he leaves his mother and his small Quebec parish to join a travelling sideshow and eventually finds fame as “The Miracle Man” in 1920’s Hollywood. On his mission to spread his message, he grows and grows as he takes on the love and hope of millions.

Advisory: Some coarse language.
