“When somebody has got what Willie here has got, they just know where they’re going and there’s just no point in trying to stop them.”
Willie, seven years old, can’t stop dreaming of the day he will dance on Broadway. Emma, his older sister, is determined that someday she will address a courtroom. Is there something wrong with them? Or is there something wrong with their parents, whose dreams for their children have little to do with what the children want? When Emma sets out to find a way to convince her parents to let her live her life her way, she doesn’t care what happens to Willie. But she soon learns that all kids need a voice, and she may be able to find a way to help them get one.
