The merry members of a brass band from Slovenia travel by bus to perform in a small Austrian town. They sing, cheer, and drink all the way there. Being part of a brass band is a joyful hobby for most orchestra members. However, not everything goes as planned. A first-time bus driver confesses his responsibility for an accident to his untrustworthy senior colleague; a brass band player cannot hide his shameful drinking to his kind Austrian host; a teenage band member on her first trip with dad on tour witnesses her father’s adultery; and back in Slovenia, a wife wishes she could brave such adultery. Five distinct stories tell us that hiding one’s actions and intentions is the best way to make them shameful!
