Description

This is a story of innocence: a lovely mother, a model little girl, and a gentle father live a regular, normal life as if following the notes on music paper. But behind the facade of happiness, this little Eden is built on a suffering so immense it could lead to murder. House of Sighs: the drama of everyday living.
