Fifteen-year-old Julia is a gifted pianist. She has won the Robert Schumann competition. Her parents, the father is a conductor and the mother an awardwinning classical pianist, project a promising future for Julia as a concert musician. Therefore, they take their daughter to "Amadeus" music boarding school. With other young people, Julia is spending a six-week trial period to prepare for her entrance examination to join the prestigious private music school. Together with his father, 15-year-old Nick has a job as an electrician at the boarding school. But he does not think much of the "arrogant cows" of the "Amadeus". Nick is the singer of the band "Rock it". When Julia listens in on a rehearsal of "Rock it", she falls in love with Nick and notes that rock music touches her heart more than classical music. When the band seeks a new keyboard player, Julia thinks her chance has come. She could get to know Nick and finally make the music she enjoys. With the help of styling tricks from her friend Francesca, she dresses up to slip into another role, and she participates in the casting for the new band keyboardist. But scheming and career-obsessed Betty fears to lose Julia as her duet partner in the entrance examination and blows up her disguise. Now Julia faces the most important decision of her life: a career as an acclaimed pianist, or the fulfilment of her most secret dreams.
