Description

Steeped in deception and immoderate passions, the Canary family fights, laughs and lies as their mute but musically brilliant youngest child, Joan, listens, blending their discordant conversations into harmony. And just when things reach an irredeemable low, Joan's experimental composition allows the family members to finally hear each other out.
