For over 20 years the citizens of Wiesenberg have cultivated the same rituals. The singing mountaineers meet once a week in the local church to rehearse together and they yodel for weddings and birthdays. Suddenly, their world is turned upside down: their CDs storm the charts and the farmers are bombarded with concert offers. The allure of show business! Now the choir is scheduled to perform in Shanghai. This tempting offer turns into a crucial test.
A film about mountain dwellers who try to remain authentic, caught between their traditions and the glamour of show business.
