After losing her mother, a troubled 13-year-old moves to Indiana to live with her grandmother Karen, a former star of stage and screen. Karen wants desperately to connect meaningfully with her granddaughter before her early-stage Alzheimer’s progresses. Although the two stubborn women butt heads at every turn, the unexpected discovery of the granddaughter’s powerful singing voice creates common ground for a possible relationship and chance at happiness. From Oscar-nominated director John Hancock, this film celebrates family bonds that can outlive fading memory. Discussion with director John Hancock, writer-actor Dorothy Tristan, and Colleen Kelly (U.Va.)
