France, 1949. A failed composer, with the measured sensitivity of a great and dignified loser, is hired as a supervisor in a re-education institution for minors but, against the severity of the cynical director, he contrasts the sweetness of his music lessons. Inspired by the 1947 film “La Cage aux Rossignols”.
