Zu is newly sober and finding her way in the world when she receives news that she is to become the sole guardian of her half-sister named Music, a young girl on the autism spectrum. The film explores two of Sia's favorite themes -- finding your voice and what it means to create family.
The film's screenplay was co-written by Sia and children's book author Dallas Clayton based on a one-page story that she had written in 2007. Sia decided to direct the film after co-directing the music video for "Chandelier" in 2014 in which, in her own words, she felt "a little bit braver" and "pretty good" at directing. See more »
In the sequence for "Music", the character Music is shown twirling counter-clockwise. When it cuts back to her twirling, she's spinning the other direction. See more »

In Sia's special thanks, she credits "Godchild" in reference to Maddie Ziegler, "Bunkie" in reference to her makeup artist, Tonya Brewer, and "Le David", a nickname for her manager, David Russell. She also credits "My Australians" See more »
This was an absolute yikes. Sis has Maddie Ziegler trapped in a gilded cage as she forces her to act as a caricature of an autistic person. If you are autistic, the movie itself may over stimulate you, so be prepared.
