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 the music business. But Rauli too has his little secrets. There is also the young waitress Lena, trying to find a balance between her tender feelings for Beck and making her own living.

Rauli’s mysterious family backgrounds. Anna Lind – the incarnation of the erotic teenage queen for every teacher and pupil. And Beck’s only friend Charlie – the gigantic African-German and real philosopher. All of them are on a journey to their inner selves - and they all will arrive, but not always as expected.
