Based on the play Spring's Awakening by Frank Wedekind
Caught between their sexual urges and society's contradictory teachings, a group of teenagers reveal their alluringly melancholy story of self-discovery and coming-of-age anxiety as seen through the eyes of young teenagers. Set in repressive 19th-century Germany, these students attempt to reckon with the thrilling, complicated and confusing time of their adolescence. This haunting and provocative rock-musical is a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion in a daring fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll.
