After being sent to a prestigious music school, he is challenged by a demanding teacher. A stellar ensemble cast - including two-time Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman, Oscar-winner Kathy Bates, two-time Emmy winner Eddie Izzard, three-time Oscar-nominee Debra Winger, Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind) and Kevin McHale (Glee) - plus an exciting group of newcomers star as the teachers and young singers battling through fierce national contests in order to take their boychoir to new competitive heights.
