Vitus, who is six years of age, is a very unusual boy. He has hearing like a bat, plays piano like the young Mozart and reads the encyclopaedia at kindergarten. No wonder that his parents sense that a brilliant career lies ahead for their boy, who, they have decided, is to become a pianist. But Vitus simply does not want to fulfil his ambitious parents’ wishes and expectations any longer. Vitus is finally rebelling, preferring to follow his own “star”.
