Disadvantaged young people living in extreme poverty in Hungary often drop out of school. This is a serious problem today. These children live in insecurity; paying for extracurricular activities or moving away from their place of residence is not possible. 
This documentary follows a music program in a primary school in Miskolc, Hungary, between September 2014 and September 2016. We see the music learning process, family backgrounds, living and social conditions in this Roma populated area. The music program brings a huge change in quality of life for the students. While learning music they learn also perseverance, discipline and teach one another to pay attention and focus.
