An old and tattered violin is auctioned for only dollars at a community auction until a master violinist plays the violin and makes it sing like an angel. When he is through playing music with the worn instrument, the old violin is sold for $3,000. The violin is symbolic for the magical and wondrous transformation a manís soul undertakes when he is touched by the hand of God.
