Number 15 is unanimously chosen as first trumpet in a blind audition. She turns out to be a woman. The leader of the orchestra turns out to be a misogynist. The next twelve years of her life turn into a living hell as he tries to get rid of her in this wildly comic satire on prejudice, power and the people in its thrall.
