Nodoka Okisawa, Sara Ferrández and Lennard Czakaj are three of 30 musicians who have landed a prestigious place at the Karajan Academy, the Berlin Philharmonic's academy of excellence. That means lessons and concerts with one of the best orchestras in the world. But it also means great expectations and a lot of pressure.

Violist Sara dreams of a solo career. She wants to bring classical music closer to young people. She wants to break taboos - because she thinks there are too many conventions in classical music that don't make sense. Trumpet player Lennard does not come from a musical household. He got his first trumpet from his parents when he was eight years old. At the time, he felt guilty because he knew the instrument was very expensive. He has since put all his eggs in one basket and hopes to get a job in the orchestra. He doesn't have a plan B. Nodoka is expecting a baby. And with that, she is once again confronted with something that, in her opinion, has no place in music: A female conductor is not always accepted and then a pregnant one... But on the podium she forgets everything - and floats.
