Synopsis : At the moment Paula is only an ordinary supporting role, but she’s got her final exams coming up at the school for main characters. However, her emotive music generator suddenly starts playing up, which is a huge setback for her. No starring role can survive without the accompaniment of a rousing string section and haunting melodies on the piano. No-one has any idea what the problem is, so the girl has to try and find a solution for herself. She sets off on a road that takes her not only into her family’s past, but also into a world on the fringes, a world of outtakes and illicit dealers in sound effects…
