A cautionary tale about genetic enhancements for children. We see a lot through the eyes of a daughter who has implants to enable her to see music, not quite old enough to understand the arguments between her parents. We get her father’s perspective, and the grandparents, to highlights how child-rearing has moved over just a couple of generations from crossing your fingers and hoping for the best, to being able to spend money to hopefully ensure that best.
