12 Notes Down

Thematic Program DoubleTake

How do you decide when it’s time to let go? For young Jorgis, the star voice of the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir, the moment is upon him. With just a few weeks to go before an important concert, his voice has suddenly begun to break, forcing the 14-year-old into a state of transition he is not prepared for. He must choose between damaging his vocal cords trying to hit the high notes and dashing his hopes by walking way in this tender portrayal of a universal, yet intensely personal, rite of passage.
