Die Thomaner (St. Thomas Boys Choir) 

In 2012 the St. Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig celebrates its 800th anniversary. An almost unbelievable period of time, if one considers that the choir outlasted all ups and downs of European history, maintaining its unbroken traditions over the centuries and holding onto established principles such as the inclusion of the elder boys in the education of the younger ones. The film accompanies the choir over a period of one year, immersing into a unique world between motet, boarding school and football pitch, into a life that is distinguished by success and pressure to perform, doubts and pride, homesickness and genuine friendship.
