Marie and Inga are friends that go to school for the blind and they play music together. One day, Marie helps Herbert who was being chased by police and it turns into an opportunity to form a band called ‘Blindflyers’. This is a story of children maturing through music and it goes beyond the superficiality of picturing the lives of the disabled but brings us smile as it reminds us of our younger days.
