Andrew Neyman is an aspiring young jazz drummer who is thrilled to land a place at a prestigious American music academy. However, with amazing opportunities comes a lot of serious pressure and Andrew finds himself struggling under the ruthless instruction of his pedantic band conductor Terence Fletcher. With his decades of experience, Fletcher has an ear for music Andrew couldn't hope to emulate and yet his struggles to correct his own miniscule mistakes go totally unsympathised with. He is left flustered and on the verge of tears during one particularly heated band practice, whereby Fletcher's unsuccessful attempts to correct Andrew's tempo lead to the latter being nearly struck over the head with a chair by the volatile teacher who precedes to slap him hard around the face several times. Is Andrew strong enough to survive such fierce scrutiny, or are his dreams of musicianship almost over?
