Is there singing? Heart warming story? Family overcoming their own history? Secrets uncovered? Yes. But did I love it? Eh. It was okay. While very intellectually well constructed, it failed to hit the rhythms that allowed me time to connect. The main character's arc is immediately obvious from the first line. The grandmother is too awful, then too quickly redeemed. What it lacked in feeling it tried to make up with rapid fire songs that delivered lots of information but still failed to land.
