A socially awkward young woman takes her first tentative steps toward independence and fulfilling a lifelong dream in this delightful Dutch romantic comedy. Ever since her mother’s death, Moos finds herself caught between caring for her grieving father and having a life of her own. Her father wants her to take over the family textile business in a Jewish neighborhood in Amsterdam. Moos wants to become a theater star, seizing an opportunity to apply to a prestigious performing arts academy. Balancing her family’s low expectations of her against her own pride and determination to make something of herself, Moos reveals an inner strength few suspected she possessed. Suffused with warmth and brimming with beguiling characters, director Job Gosschalk’s heartwarming charmer portrays a heroine’s quest to find her own uniquely beautiful voice.
