When a once-in-a-lifetime concert opportunity is cut short by her mother, teenage singer Monika will stop at nothing to pursue her dream.


Monika, a thirteen-year-old Lithuanian singer, arrives in Dublin with her pianist mother and demented grandmother. When her mother accepts a promotion at the local fish factory and sells their keyboard, Monika refuses to give up on her dream to make it big and cooks up a scheme to get it back and go perform at the Castle, a mysterious place where she’s been invited to sing.
