An elementary school located on the deep mountain is facing a crisis of being abolished due to population migration. The gym teacher “Bukut” is assigned to form a choir, and to win the national choir contest to solve such a crisis.
With limited resources and no music background, teacher Bukut and a group of tone-deaf Bunun students, and the other lovely music teacher “Yun Fen Huang” started to prepare for the contest. On the contest day, the students hear other choir singing, but they refuse to get onto the stage because they believe their voice is different and, therefore is wrong...
Both teachers have to lure the students to finish the contest. Sadly, they do not win, but they still get big applause from the audience. For the students from a small school, the applause from thousands of audience creates a huge impact on them, which gets the teachers to think: What’s wrong with being different?
Maybe that is the core of the choir and the antidote to change people’s thoughts about them!
