Synopsis

1949, post-War France - In a dark room, doom-filled school for troubled boys where hope itself in short supply, a mild-mannered new teacher has just arrived, only to find himself surrounded by prepubescent thieves, inveterate liars, unapologetic rebels and lost souls beyond reach. Or are they? When Clement Mathieu introduces these supposedly hard-core delinquents to something they've never experienced before - the freedom and joy of music - he discovers there is far more to these children than anyone dared to believe.
