Laurie Amat has heard about a conspiracy theory involving Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis. Supposedly, on an international conference in 1939, the Nazis changed the music tuning globally. They changed the frequency to 440 Hertz, altering the tone of the tuning fork for all musicians worldwide. They did it because they thought it would make the masses easier to manipulate. This is the music pitch we listen to today. In her exploration to discover the truth behind this theory, Laurie is thrown on a larger adventure into the unknown universe of sound in which she meets passionate and charismatic sound enthusiasts. Over the course of this fascinating documentary, they reveal what sound means to them personally, and what it can do to you.
