Rodrigo and the Curse
13 February 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The orchestra is still in Mexico. Rodrigo and Hailey escape the orchestra on a bus and go to the place of his childhood. They meet his grandmother, some coffee grounds are read, and it is predicted that Hailey and the Maestro will produce children in the future. A deal is negotiated by Thomas to get a rich Mexican guy who has his own helicopter to invest in the symphony. There is more drama as Cynthia branches out, hooking up with the female negotiator. There are further breaches of trust going on all the time. Finally, the escapees visit Rodrigo's mentor. He directs a youth symphony and gives the maestro a chance to lead them. He tells Rodrigo that he is willing this group to Rodrigo. When Rodrigo refuses, he has a curse put on him.
