Can a teacher let his pupil go, so the latter can become a master of his own voice? Conductor Geert van den Dungen discov­ered an excep­tional vocal talent in the 12-year-old choirboy Oscar Verhaar. Five years later, docu­men­tary film­maker Hester Over­mars was struck by their collab­o­ra­tion and dedi­ca­tion. Over­mars not only offers a glimpse behind the scenes of the world of clas­sical and baroque music, but also shows how the tie between mentor and pupil develops.
