Synopsis by Jack Rodgers

A social worker (Shirley Henderson) is assigned to help an orphaned teen girl (Letitia Wright) who has repeatedly been in trouble with the law, and she hits on the idea of having her join a local singing choir. Unfortunately, the girl's more troubled friend (Isabella Laughland) interprets her new interest in music as a threat, and tries to undermine her bond with the social worker. Michael Caton-Jones directed this drama, which made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
