MUSIC is a powerful, original, and celebratory artistic statement and the directorial debut of multi-Grammy nominee and internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and pop icon Sia. Sia also co-wrote the screenplay which is based on her own short story.
Zu (Kate Hudson) is a free spirit estranged from her family who suddenly finds herself the sole guardian of her half-sister, Music (Ziegler), a teenager on the autism spectrum whose whole world order has been beautifully crafted by her late grandmother. With a history of addiction issues that have challenged her self-worth and reliability, Zu can barely take care of herself and she struggles with the new responsibilities her sister brings. But Music has the watchful loving eye of her local community, and Zu soon learns that life’s obstacles can be made easier with a little help from their neighbour Ebo (Odom Jr.). The musical drama explores the tenuous bonds that hold us together, and imagines a world where those bonds can be strengthened in times of great challenge: love, trust, and being able to be there for each other is everything.
