Storyline

After the tragic death of his ex-girlfriend, Kyle Foster struggles to accept the responsibility of being a father to the young daughter, Teigan, who they had together. Amidst pressure from Teigan's grandfather Bill for legal custody and Kyle's desire to pursue his dreams of being a professional musician, he strives to find his way. As the details of their complex history emerge, the pain and resentment Kyle and Bill feel for each other blinds them to the love they share for the little girl who connects them. As their unwillingness to reconcile threatens to tear her away from both of them forever, their journey becomes an odyssey of redemption, commitment and forgiveness as they discover what is most important in their lives.

A feel-good movie you can take your kids to without concern for content.
7 October 2013 | by Sherri GallantSee all my reviews

Common Chord is a great family film with important messages about fatherhood. This movie is beautifully shot (DOP Jim McNally) and the original music (mostly by Joshua Reuben) is perfectly paired to the script and characters. It's an admirable effort for a first film from these collaborators. Go see this movie if you like family-friendly viewing. Wonderful performance by Jason Cermak, who plays Kyle Foster - a young musician who must decide if he'll fight for custody of his young daughter after the child's mother dies. Ashlin Malik, 11, shines as his daughter Tiegan in this, her debut, and we can expect to see this little girl again. Filmed in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, threads of colourful family dynamics are woven into this movie that will feel familiar to many.
