An Oscar-winning short film about a young girl who is forced to either stand up against a corrupt system or fit quietly into it.


Zsofi is struggling to fit in at her new school – singing in the school’s famous choir is her only consolation. But the choir director may not be the inspirational teacher everyone thinks she is… Zsofi and her new friend Liza decide to teach their teacher a lesson. Based on a true story, the film follows an award-winning school choir and the new girl in class facing a tough choice: to stand up against a corrupt system, or to fit quietly into it. Dealing with themes of ambition, rejection and solidarity, this powerful, beautiful film directed by Hungarian filmmaker Kristof Deak, gained immense international success and won numerous prestigious awards, including an Oscar for Live Action Short at this year’s Academy Awards.
