Director's Synopsis

Amy Camus works a job she has little passion for, married to a man for whom she has far less…Now faced with losing her wealthy architect father, the one person she turns to in times of trouble. Reduced to confusion and melancholia, George Baxter no longer recognizes Amy. Instead mistakes her for someone called MYA. Amy’s mother, Marianne is too self-involved to explain.
When Amy discovers drawings of a house George intended for Mya and their clandestine liaisons, her curiosity turns obsessive. His secret life rocks her sense of self, throwing into question their once cherished relationship. More surprising still is the HOUSE — totally unlike the strip malls and bank buildings that have made him rich but unfulfilled. Inspired by beauty alone — profit be-damned. Like some vision conjured from a fairytale or siren’s song. In fact, from MYA’S SONGS, Amy discovers…as beguiling and seductive as the house itself. Neither opera nor jazz but something unclassifiable — the rhapsodic creation of a true believer. Once a recipient of fifteen minutes of media fireworks and cult fame, this singer is all but forgotten now. Except by George. Where did she go? And why does he persist in calling Amy by her name? What was their relationship? As Amy investigates the mystery, she comes to question the choices she’s made for herself, as well as the nature of her own identity. When finally faced with the truth of George’s secret life, she must decide whether to surrender to her world of habitual discontent or leave it behind. To enter that unknown place, not accessible by GPS and never up for sale. The address of her long-languishing dreams.
