Moving away from her family is a big step for young Marie. Shy, inexperienced in life and immature, she nonetheless embraces this exciting opportunity to fine-tune her piano skills at a prestigious music school. Marie gets more than she bargained for upon moving in with mysterious childhood friend Emma.

Both women have changed vastly since their younger years, and what was once an intimate bond soon develops into something much more intense, and a power struggle ensues. Emma fascinates, dominates and devastates Marie, who struggles between her desire for Emma and the urge to escape. With this draining obsession having an adverse effect on her piano recitals, Marie decides to put an end to Emma’s advances - but Emma won’t give her up without a fight...

Highly Strung combines heady passions of unrequited adolescent love with sinister overtones of jealousy, lust and envy, to the tune of classical symphonies from Mozart, Ravel, Bach and Chopin.
