Storyline

An autistic child growing up in the 1940's and 50's with a mother who is bitter because her fear of success has denied to herself a possible career in opera. This anger translates into an over-protectiveness of her mentally ill daughter, even into the child's adulthood. But a loving sister, herself having an arm that is paralyzed, is a bastion against the limitations imposed by the mother and finally helps her sister to live a more full life.

Excellent Film!
14 February 2002 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is probably one of the best performances Megan Follows has ever given! I really enjoyed the beauty of the film, the music and the characters made up such a large part of what made this film work so well. Megan's performance as Rosetta couldn't have been better and I give this film two thumbs up!

Great Job!
