Sharon is thirteen and her life revolves around music, arguing with her parents and dreaming of freedom. But her mother's sudden death opens an abyss of rage where her neither father's tormented silence, nor the coarse understanding of Mrs. Theresa can reach her. It is in that abyss where Sharon risks losing her little brother David, who clings desperately to the fantasy world invented by their mother. Perhaps the bizarre embracing of that world and its eccentric characters who inhabit it will help the siblings to find each other among the darkness of pain. But to do so, Sharon will have to face her demons. And she will have to take David back home.
