Jane Marks is the matriarch of a confused trio of daughters that seems to have nothing in common, except for a peculiar sort of idealism -- a heady brew of vanity, insecurity and humor.
Former homecoming queen Michelle, the eldest daughter, is in a loveless marriage with a spouse who does not appreciate her decidedly obscure artistic endeavors. Younger sister Elizabeth, an insecure actress whose career is beginning to take off, compulsively takes home stray dogs, saving them whether or not they need to be saved. Only the youngest sister, Annie, an adopted African American eight-year old, stands a chance at rising above the family’s legacy. But on the threshold of what promises to be a confusing adolescence, Annie has developed a preoccupation with her appearance -- natural enough for a pre-teen, but given her adoptive family’s history, quite possibly a hint of what’s to come for the newest member of the Marks family.
Each of the women seeks redemption in her own haphazard way, but whatever salvation they find is illusory and shortlived. When complications from cosmetic surgery threaten Jane's well-being, the family of comically self-absorbed women must quickly find room for each other in their lives to offer comfort and strength.

While working at an apple orchard, he falls for Candy (Charlize Theron) who teaches him a few lessons in the art of life, love and home. In 'Little Voice' (1998) the eponymous character (Jane Horrocks) is a social introvert, unwilling to communicate with the outside world since the death of her father.

When a sleazy showbiz agent (Caine) overhears her singing, he is determined to make her a star and become rich in the process.
