Andreas and Jake are both gifted classical pianists preparing to compete at the International Liszt Piano Competition in Budapest, Hungary. In the year leading up to the event, tension mounts as each young man prepares for the moment that will decide his lifelong fate. Andreas begins to work with a new piano teacher, convinced that her instruction and her position as a judge in the contest will give him a leg up. What he does not anticipate is that she will challenge him personally as well as musically - ultimately calling into question his artistic purpose. Jake, on the other hand, begins to unravel throughout the year. Living more dangerously all the time, one wonders if he will even make it to Budapest. To further complicate matters, Andreas becomes entwined in a love triangle with Jake's girlfriend, a beautiful and gifted opera singer. The suspense builds in IVORY as the competition draws closer with more at stake for Andreas and Jake than just their onstage performances. – B.K.
