A woman devoted to the life of the mind meets an artist who changes the way she looks at life in this offbeat independent musical drama. Lynn Magnusson (Jane Perry) is a dedicated research scientist who works with a small firm attempting to develop new cancer treatments through genetics. Lynn and her staff are attempting to crack the DNA code that makes certain people more likely to contract certain diseases, a matter that's of both professional and personal importance to her -- her mother is slowly wasting away because of Huntington's disease, and Lynn is likely to suffer the same fate, as would her offspring. Lynn has other distractions at work, most notably Benny (Jonathon Young), one of her assistants, with whom she has been having an affair. As Lynn struggles to make sense of her work and her love life, she becomes aware of her upstairs neighbor (Kevin McNulty), a composer who is as free and open to the joys of life as she's tightly wound and uncertain. As the two get to know one another, the story makes room for several musical numbers in which the characters share their feelings in song and dance. The Score was the first feature film from director Kim Collier.
