Andrew Neyman is a 19-year-old drummer, dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. He attends a cutthroat music conservatory and practices at all hours of the day, but he’s haunted by the failed writing career of his father and wonders if he has what it takes to leave a mark. Then he meets Terence Fletcher, a larger-than-life music instructor with a very particular teaching style. Under Fletcher’s ruthless direction, Andrew begins to pursue perfection at any cost – even his humanity.

Andrew, 19 ans, rêve de devenir l’un des meilleurs batteurs de jazz de sa génération. Mais la concurrence est rude au conservatoire de Manhattan où il s’entraîne avec acharnement. Il a pour objectif d’intégrer le fleuron des orchestres dirigé par Terence Fletcher, professeur féroce et intraitable. Lorsque celui-ci le repère enfin, Andrew se lance, sous sa direction, dans la quête de l’excellence…
