一位韓國聲樂家金載昌到印度南方普那(Pune)城的貧民窟開設音樂教室,教導當地的孩子唱聲樂,成立了「香蕉兒童合唱團」,一轉眼就是五年!聲樂家脾氣焦躁沒有耐性,學生戲稱他為「憤怒鳥老師」。憤怒鳥老師的理念不是要培養孩子成為聲樂家,而是希望用歌劇和古典樂為貧窮的孩子打開一扇美學之窗。許多孩子無法持續地前來上音樂課,因為他們必須在家幫忙。孩子們的父母親多半從事勞動工作或做小生意,有許多還是文盲。憤怒鳥老師於是把父母親也請來,跟孩子們一起練唱,最後安排了一場公演。
導演跟隨聲樂家一整年,紀錄了憤怒鳥老師的熱情,也紀錄了在印度社會底層討生活的父母親與他們的孩子一起做一件跳脫生活常軌的事而臉上發光,情感交融。

A hot-tempered Korean opera singer, affectionally nicknamed “Angry Bird” by the children of the “Banana Children's Choir” that he helps set up in Pune, India, is trying to make a positive difference in the lives of the children in the slums through music. However, his effort is not always appreciated by the parents, whose own trouble in making ends meet always get in the way. To show the parents the value of music, Angry Bird decides to train them to sing for a joint concert with their children, not knowing the challenges that lie ahead.
