Laura and her sister Lydia took over their mother’s ice cream shop when she passed away. It wasn’t what they wanted for their lives but they needed to do this for their father until the shop could be sold. Laura starts playing the guitar she used to love but hadn’t thought of in years. Lydia starts selling scrap booking supplies at home parties. Laura’s teenage son Shane starts getting interested in the guitar, writing songs and singing too. Laura and Shane go together to the city for open mike nights.
This film is a combination of searching both in middle age and as a teenager. Looking for what you really want to do with your life as you are getting older and as you are on your way to becoming an adult. Laura has pressure from her husband and her sister. Shane has peer pressure and from his two brothers. 3 ½* (I liked this movie)
