17-year old Rauli is the outsider in his school until his music teacher Robert Beck discovers his outstanding musical talent: he plays the guitar and is a gifted singer. Beck is willing to manage and promote Rauli. But he follows his own hidden agenda: once a promising young musician himself, he is trying to make his comeback into music business. But also Rauli has his little secrets.
There is the young waitress Lena, trying to find a balance between her tender feelings for Beck and making her own living. Rauli‚Äòs mysterious family background. Anna Lind – the incarnation of the erotic teenage queen for every teacher and pupil. And Beck‚Äòs only friend Charlie – the gigantic African-German philosopher. All of them are on a journey to their inner selves – and they all will arrive – but not always as expected.
