The Competition is a 1980 drama about a high-stakes concert piano competition, and two contestants who break all the rules by falling in love. Paul Dietrich is a highly-talented classical pianist whose artistic gifts are clouded by his loss of faith in the art form after years of fruitlessly seeking success. His father has taken ill and Paul knows it's time to settle down, take a job as a teacher and move on with his life. Paul learns of a San Francisco piano competition that's offering a large grant and a performance tour to the winner. He decides to make the competition his last all-or-nothing attempt at finding a career as a concert pianist. The competition boasts some heavy competition, including the beautiful and talented Heidi Joan Schoonover who has harbored a romantic crush on Paul since they met years ago. Both Paul and Heidi know they need to focus on the competition, but they can't resist each other. The Competition is a touching film full of beautiful music from the world's greatest composers.
