A teenage girl from a small French town learns that she has a singing talent, and her parents do not understand her. This would be a premise for a standard high school movie, but here’s the complication: the rest of the family is literally deaf. There’s no use for this talent in the family - and even in the town itself. But her family relies on her for dealing with the world, would she abandon them now? Add to the intriguing story a number of really lively characters, and you’ve got yourself a cute and touching French movie.
