“The kingdom of Renais lies in ruins, shattered by a sudden invasion from a former ally. Guide the royal heirs, Eirika and Ephraim, on their twin quest to rebuild Renais and discover the dark secret behind the war that has torn their homeland apart.”
Of David Lynch’s ten feature films, five of them prominently feature a woman singing on stage. While in some cases this character is more integral to the story than others, the singing itself never fails to affect each protagonist, if only briefly.
