Stet (Wareing) is an angry eleven-year-old who can sing like an angel. Left an orphan after his mother is killed in a car accident, Stet ends up in an East Coast musical boarding school, far removed from his traditional Texan upbringing. It’s the schools Choirmaster (Hoffman) who sees great potential in the young boy and encourages him to put his soul into his music.

Never missing a chance to show off his film’s lovely, often unexpectedly challenging choral arrangements, Girard lets the purity of the boys’ singing linger in the background, a beatific echo even in dialogue scenes.
