Project type: Diplom
The musically talented, but socially challenged Henry (14) arrives at a private boarding school for music students at the beginning of a new school year. There, he unexpectedly discovers his fascination with playing the organ. From the fascination, a general love for the instrument arises, the playing of which offers Henry a refuge from the bullying that his fellow students put him through. His teacher Ms. Schmidt (43) recognizes his talent. Her growing interest in Henry, however, further worsens his position with his roommates Erik (14), Mik (14) and Sebastian/Sebi (13). Erik feels that his status as the school’s prodigy is threatened, his talent as an organ player has saved him from relegation for years. Erik rules the school and is in a relationship with Melanie (14), who has had Henry under her spell, since he first arrived at the school. Erik and his minions Sebi and Mik do all they can to make Henry’s life living hell. Henry suffers his torment quietly and withdraws deeper into his inner world of music. During his nightly wanderings, he discovers an old organ in the school’s basement. Inspired by the various pipes cluttering the space, he plays a coarse, stark melody. He discovers a way of playing so that he can reach people. Erik tries to prevent his own fall by attacking Henry with ever increasing violence. Not until Henry tries to commit suicide, does Erik understand the extent of what he has done. At the last minute he is able to save Henry’s life, and face his own loss of status.
