A reclusive singer-songwriter makes an album that rocks the world. Now, as the music industry implodes, two siblings must come together to battle over their legendary mother's legacy and her twenty years of silence. A play about music and art, connection and isolation, power and commerce, and the ever-changing landscape of what it means to be a family today.
