14-year-old Jorgis is a gifted choir boy. The star voice of the Royal Chapel Choir. A few weeks before the choir's biggest concert, his vocal coach delivers a shocking note: Jorgis' voice is starting to break. 12 notes down. He must stop singing in the boys' choir soon or risk damaging his voice permanently. For Jorgis, this is a shock as his entire identity will change. The boy singer must now become a man.
