All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is an escape from his family's rigid expectations for his life; someone to inspire his music. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his life music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents' control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart. Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien's obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can't escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life - his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity. Set amidst the landscape of New York's Gilded Age, and inspired by Phantom of the Opera, TRANSCEND exposes the fine line between love and madness.
