Controversial documentary about paedophilia, composed around a performance of Bach's Hohe Messe by the North Holland Boys' Choir.

Controversial documentary about paedophilia, composed around a performance of Bach's Hohe Messe by the North Holland Boys' Choir. It focuses on three paedophiles. One of them was for years a board member in youth work through which he came into contact with boys. Another one paints portraits of boys in Norway and Holland and is very successful with his work. The fact that paedophilia is rarely understood and tolerated even less often is apparent from the story of the man who is completely rejected by his surroundings after he admits his predilection. Real sexual contact remains a rarity, but a visit to a performance by the North Holland Boys' Choir offers all three a way to express their feelings.
