France, January 1949. Composer Clément Mathieu finds himself at a boarding school for troubled boys located in the French countryside. Struggling to grasp his own place in life after a series of failed endeavours, he starts a choir to try and transform the harsh atmosphere at the school caused by the principal. Then, he discovers that one of his students, Pierre, has a true talent and love for music.

In the mid-twentieth century, the boarding school is run by the principal M. Rachin, an egotistical disciplinarian whose official unofficial mantra for the school is “action – reaction”, meaning that there will be severe consequences for any boy out of line. This approach does not seem to be working as the boys as a collective are an unruly bunch. In turn, the teachers don’t teach, but are always watching out for the next subversive act from the boys. Although he does find the boys an unruly lot, Mathieu does not believe in the “action – reaction” policy, and as such, butts heads with Rachin while secretly undermining the policy. Slowly, Mathieu’s approach of trying to match the discipline to the crime does have a positive effect on a handful of students.
