Suffering from a severe hangover, record producer Jim Gystad visits Vinger Church and hears divine singing. The voices from the pew behind Jim practically lift him into eternity and away from the dreary, soulless blues he ordinarily spends his working hours trying to breathe life into. And for the first time in ages, his life doesn’t feel completely meaningless.
The voices he has heard belong to The Singing Thorsen Siblings. There was a time when the trio, two brothers and a sister, toured the US and sold hundreds of thousands of records like “It’s My Cross to Bear” and “Thirty Silver Coins on Our Father’s Bible”. Then the three siblings found love. And then they lost it. And they don’t perform any longer.
From now on Jim’s life only revolves around one thing: a firm decision to make the Thorson Siblings return to singing. He is about to be severely tasked.
And the hardest challenge of them all: to bring love back into their lives.
