Plot – Spoilers:
Based on the true story of a girl known by the name Genie, who was strapped to a chair by her father, from when she was an infant right up to when she was nearly 14.
Mockingbird Don’t Sing focuses more on the wild child’s post-escape life, as people around her try to grapple with her version of the world. The girl, who was used to shitting, pissing, puking where she sat, any time the feeling came, possibly found her newfound freedom almost as oppressive as her previous life, with most of the people around her, only looking out for themselves.
