Marcus wakes up in a hospital after having a seizure at a rock club, and after tests are run it’s discovered that he has tumors in his brain. They need to be surgically removed, and a side effect from the operation will be that he loses his hearing. He’s initially despondent and suicidal from this news, but his energy returns when he is hit with inspiration. In the time before his surgery, he plans a cross-country trip that will allow him to capture the great sounds of the world, from the wind rushing past while driving 80mph, to lapping waves, to 100 soda cans being opened at the same time.
