Celebrity composer Darcy (Jennifer Ward-Lealand) sees colours when she plays musical notes - synaesthesia. When she notices her vision is disrupted by the colour vermilion, she knows she needs help. While planning the wedding of her daughter Zoe (Emily Campbell), surrounded by her loving friends Sarah (Theresa Healey) and Sila (Goretti Chadwich), she secretly makes her own plans. An excellent effort with great samples of music by Douglas Lilburn, Don McGlashan as well as some traditional songs. My only complaint is the lack of optional English subtitles. Recommended.
