Some performances are low key ... this seems to hit all the right notes (no music pun intended - or maybe it is). This is about a state formerly known as East Germany and a man struggling to find his place in that society, but also trying his best to better others. As a musician he doesn't only entertain, but also educate other people, which is not without danger.

Sometimes trying to make the world a better place though can backfire. Something that is evident here. You know the saying about good intentions ... and while he seems decent, he finds himself in a position that is weird to say the least. As a viewer we are left to feel a struggle ... every human is different and being right, does not always mean you did the right things ...
