The Erfinder family is full of great musicians - except for Suzy. Seemingly bereft of her family's musical skills, she labors as a librarian, yearning for the excitement and adventures found in the books that surround her. Things take a turn for the bizarre when she is approached by a strange old man who offers to teach her to play the Cacophone, a mysterious and ungainly instrument with a long and sordid history. Her playing leads to a series of strange events that ultimately force her to confront her family's destiny and solve the mystery of the peculiar instrument. Written by Kristen Maxwell

Did You Know?


Executive producer Diane Maxwell created the prop of the Cacophone itself. Without access to a workshop or even a garage, she transformed the Maxwell family's tiny apartment's kitchen into a miniature wood-shop. Working on nights and weekends after her day job, she sawed, filed, drilled, painted, stained, screwed, hammered, and otherwise made a mess of her personal living space to bring the ungainly instrument to life.
