In a world of shadows, she found the light of life.

Recording star Bjork is miraculous as Selma, a factory worker in rural America and single mother who is losing her eyesight from a hereditary disease.Determined to protect her 10-year-old son from the same fate, Selma is saving her money to get him an operation.

In the evenings, Selma escapes into a world where "nothing dreadful ever happens," rehearsing for a production of The Sound of Music with her best friend, Kathy (Catherine Deneuve, Academy Award nominee for Indochine).But when a neighbor (David Morse, Proof of Life, The Green Mile, The Negotiator) betrays her trust, Selma spirals out of control.The lines between reality and fantasy blur, and Selma begins to believe that her life has actually become a Hollywood musical - as she inexorably heads toward the film's unforgettable finale.Costarring Joel Grey (Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor in Cabaret) and featuring original music by Bjork.
