Inspired by true events, this is a story about what happens when two outsiders from opposite corners of the world are thrown together: Brazil and Germany. Marten Brueckling, a retired music teacher from Germany, has inherited original sheet music from Bach's son and must collect the sheet in person, in the beautiful Baroque city of Ouro Preto in the heart of Brazil. But Brazil is not for beginners: Funny circumstances drive him to teach music to the young inmates of a juvenile detention center. Bach's music and Brazilian instruments mix perfectly. One of the kids is Fernando, a lovable abandoned boy who lived on the streets. But Marten discovers that they have more in common than he thought.
