    Release Date:

    When Annie-Mary (Rachel Griffiths) was sixteen she won the most prestigious singing prize in Wales, The Eisteddfod. She was offered a scholarship to study singing in Milan, but had to turn it down because her mother was dying. Since then she hasn`t sung a note.

    Now Annie-Mary is an awkward and secretly rebellious twentysomething living under the shadow of her chapel strict father, Jack Pugh (Jonathan Pryce), who is known to all as `the voice of the valleys`. A baker by trade, Jack is a monster of a man who delivers his loaves in a Luciano Pavarotti mask and uses his daughter as a human hot water bottle when his feet get cold.

    Annie-Mary dreams of breaking free, but her father has a stroke and demands even more of her time. When she finally does rebel, the whole village becomes involved. But it is only when she finds her voice again that Annie-Mary finds her freedom.
