An anonymous donor sends a recently orphaned 12-year-old boy to a musical boarding school on the East Coast. The boy, a rebellious loner, surpasses everyone’s expectations, especially that of the school’s exacting choir master (Dustin Hoffman) and achieves the high standard that is required to join the 'boychoir' - a choral of brothers who travel the world and maintain the school’s famed status. In an uplifting and inspiring family drama with a cast that includes Kathy Bates and Kevin McHale of “Glee” fame, it is the voices that are the real stars.
