Stet, raised in a fraught family situation often caused trouble. Day after day, he got into fights, but the truth was that he had an extraordinary talent for singing. One day he is told of being allowed into the prestigious American Boy Choir School. He meets a demanding choirmaster, Carvelle who was in charge of training and cultivating the boys in this school. He had begun his career as a choirmaster because his talents for singing wasn't recognized when he was younger, and he treats Stet, who is wasting his talents, harshly.

At first, Stet couldn't read the musical score, and often got bullied at the school, but gradually gets attracted to singing. Thereafter Stet is given a chance to sing a song by himself at the noble concert.
