Sparrow and her Songs


In the 1880s, many of the poorest people in Paris, lived in a a shanty town near Montmartre, until one dreadful day when the wooden shanties burned down. Then the folk had to struggle to earn food and shelter. Some were mere children, like Sparrow and her crippled brother, Marcel. Her only hope to was to make money with her music, but it was not going to be easy for her.
