In twenty-five years, young Korean musicians have embraced a music that is very different from their culture: classical music, as played and composed in Europe for several centuries, has even become one of the pillars of education in Korea. The film traces the journey of some laureates of prestigious competitions who make up this new generation nicknamed the K-Classics Generation. In Korea, where it all started, and in Germany where most of them have settled.
