The Choir Trailer


Stet is just 11-years-old and struggling to come to terms with his mother's death. He frequently lashes out and has little discipline, but the one thing he does have a lot of is talent. An impressive singer, he is thrust into the National Boychoir Academy who accept him only on the basis that he can sing and that his father pays them well. However, he struggles to fit in with the other children, especially when it emerges that he is unable to read music. He causes fights and is frequently picked on, the school are beginning to see him as a liability, but there's an important concert coming up and Stet could prove to be their new secret weapon; all he needs is a little help. Choir master Carvelle takes him under his wing with a hard line, determined to show Stet just how great he can be.
