READ THE SYNPOSIS
CHARLOTTE LAKES, a brilliant teenage songwriter, is stuck living in the shadow of her deceased Dad’s music legacy... when the 20-year anniversary of his debut album forces her to face his abandonment.
MEET THE PRODUCERS
The only thing Charlotte ever got from her dad was a song.
Jack Lakes became a pop-rock icon before his tragic passing. And
the only thing he gave his daughter before abandoning her and her
troubled mom, Mary, was a song, “Magical She.” Now, 18-year-old
Charlotte is left with a dream... a dream of attending the Leeman
Songwriting Conservatory and a dream of eluding her dad’s legacy.
In the year following high school, Charlotte is working two jobs to
save for Leeman. However, with the 20-year anniversary of Jack’s
hit debut album being celebrated with a tribute concert, Charlotte
must choose to evade his name at every corner or face the pain
of his abandonment and take part in the tribute.
Even while using her hypnotic music performances as an emotional
outlet, Charlotte is consistently challenged both in her dreams and
in her reality with Jack... where she realizes the memories of the
father she thought she knew might not be entirely reliable.
