Summary, etc.:
"Shootings. Rape. Mysterious blood splatters. Is the tooth fairy real? These are some of the conversation topics for eight and nine-year-olds in the Jane-Finch area of Toronto. While their single mothers struggle to make rent, the kids often fend for themselves. Pianist Thompson Egbo-Egbo, once such a kid himself, starts a music program at a school in the inner city neighbourhood. He and three other musicians work with the students one-on-one to help them find their voice. For some, it's the first time anyone has had the time to really listen to them. But as the kids open up, the mentors realize that connecting to their students is more complicated than they thought."--Container.
