This coming-of-age drama follows Monika, a 13-year-old Lithuanian girl who has recently moved to Dublin with her mother and demented grandmother. A passionate singer, Monika pushes her mother, a professional pianist, to keep playing with her. But mum now works in a fish factory to pay the bills. When the two are invited to play at “The Castle”, Monika’s mum refuses and won’t give Monika the 120 euros she needs to hire a keyboard. Determined to go, a desperate Monika ends up kidnapping her own granny and demanding the ransom from her mum.

“Affecting and thought-provoking, Luzyte’s drama is a lament to the talent that is 

sacrificed everyday in modern Ireland.” - Film Ireland
