More often than not, parents are in open contrast with their children’s teachers: They always question their judgment and see conspiracies everywhere, failing to realize that by doing so they severely impair the growth of their kids. The parents always say “We know our child better than everyone, and we know exactly what he has to learn”. That’s exactly what happens to the young cast of “Come diventare grandi nonostante i genitori”. When the new high school principal, who doesn’t approve recreational activities, decides not to allow the participation of her students to the national battle of the bands, boys and girls suffer a mortal blow: They live to make music. But when the parents start to protest the decision, the principal decides to double the daily homework. After the first bad grades, the parents decide to stop the protest and submit to the principal’s decision. However, fueled by their pride, the kids sign up for the battle of the bands despite their parents’ decision. Facing impossible odds, boys and girls will learn to grow up in surprising ways.
