Trama: Dewey Finn è un chitarrista rock fallito: abbondantemente oltre i trent'anni d'età, è stato cacciato dal suo gruppo perché troppo esibizionista sul palco e vive a casa dell'amico Ned Shneebly cui deve mesi d'affitto arretrati perché disoccupato. Spinto dalla fidanzata Patty, Ned fa a sua volta pressioni su Dewey affinché si trovi un lavoro. L'occasione giunge propizia quando arriva a casa di Ned, che svolge incarichi da supplente, la telefonata della prestigiosa scuola elementare Horace Green per un lavoro a tempo in sostituzione di un altro insegnante resosi indisponibile. Dewey, sentita l'offerta economica, finge di essere Ned e si presenta alla scuola, ottenendo il lavoro. I primi giorni scorrono nel torpore più assoluto: sordo alle richieste dei fanciulli che chiedono di fare lezione, Dewey bivacca in cattedra preoccupandosi solo di far scorrere il tempo fino all'uscita. La situazione muta quando Dewey scopre casualmente che i bambini sono dotati musicalmente: il suo obiettivo, ora, è di formare una rock band durante le ore di lezione in modo da far partecipare la classe alla "Battaglia delle Band", un concorso per gruppi musicali emergenti. Attento a non insospettire la preside Mullins e ad evitare che i genitori dei ragazzi scoprano ciò che si sta preparando, Dewey riesce ad appassionare al Rock 'n' Roll anni Settanta la classe, che in un primo momento ignorava anche l'esistenza di tale genere musicale, stimolandoli nell'esecuzione, nelle prove, trovando per ognuno la propria occupazione a seconda delle attitudini e formandoli prestando loro i dischi del periodo. Ciononostante, solo una trovata pietosa e falsa (fingere che la classe provenga da un reparto ospedaliero di malati terminali) permette al gruppo di iscriversi alla competizione. Nel frattempo, tuttavia, l'imbroglio di Dewey è scoperto e il falso insegnante è obbligato a lasciare la classe per le vibranti proteste dei genitori

"Papa's Song is a drama of domestic tension and cross-cultural misunderstanding. Nico Verema (Rene van Asten), a decorous, somewhat gloomy Dutch magistrate, lives happily with his wife, Shirley (Roman Vrede), who is from Curacao. Shirley's two young nephews, in the Netherlands to escape a bad situation at home, complete the household. Its atmosphere of calm bourgeois propriety is soon upended by the arrival of the boys' mother, Magda (Lisette Merenciana). Shirley and Magda relationship is very stormy: they careen from screaming recrimination to tearful tenderness. Nico tries to mediate and soothe, but when Shirley, who cannot bear children, demands that he impregnate her sister, the good judge finds himself entangled in an intergenerational, trans-Atlantic web of family dysfunction."--Container
