Set in Denmark in 1969 13 year-old Frits (Janus Dissing Rathke) is under tremendous pressure trying to help his family cope as his father's suffered a breakdown. But he can't even relax at school as he is being bullied by his cruel headmaster.

Frits only escape is when he is listening to records of Martin Luther King's speeches. This gives him an idea to fight back at the old world repressive regimes at work in his community and spread the winds of change.
