Many people never go to a concert hall or listen to classical music. The typically young members of the Ricciotti Ensemble have come up with something. They simply go on the road to reach new audiences. In their bus, they tour across the country. Having arrived somewhere, they all jump from the bus and install themselves as quickly as possible, on a square for instance, and start playing. Their new record time is two minutes and twelve seconds, one of the members who are interviewed proudly explains. Sometimes cops send them off, but usually they can stay. One of the musicians is followed a little closer in the film. Judith is a violinist and gets the opportunity to further develop herself musically in Vienna. The interviews with the youthful idealists are informal. Classical music can be fun.
