Gus Nightingale is a little boy from a very famous musical family, but when his mother dies, all music is banned from his house. After he is dreadfully humiliated by The Maestro, Gus decides the safest option is to stop speaking and singing - in effect to HUSH! One day, Gus passes the old music shop & finds it open. Inside, he finds a girl called Clementine Pickles. Clementine shows Gus how it is possible to play beautiful music even on broken instruments but as Gus is leaving, an evil stranger enters the shop, locks Clementine in a cello case, steals her voice & a precious baton! This evil stranger uses the baton to extract sounds from everyone & everything, leaving the world a completely silent place. A hush has fallen. A plan unfolds. A voice is forgotten...
