Comments: Children? Was more about the schoolteacher. Haphazrd storytelling trying to cover too many myth issues. And giving the kid the gun. I didn't like that. It did finally touch on the issue of letting go/dealing after a loss, by virtue of the cat. The only heartfelt moment of the film.

Summary: A coming of age story involving young love and a mysterious music, coming from a crystal radio left as a memento by an absent father, that leads a young heroine deep into a hidden world.
