Siblings and Juilliard-trained pianists The 5 Browns were on top of the world after three #1 records and appearances on 60 Minutes, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and more. But beneath the surface of their success loomed a terrible secret: their father, who managed their careers, was responsible for years of sexual abuse against the three sisters. Long before #MeToo, and well-aware that their story would devastate their family and possibly the group, the young women bravely spoke out. The 5 Browns: Digging Through the Darkness follows the siblings’ search for healing through the transformative power of music.
