Papa Alaev Rules
Everyone defers to Papa Alaev. In a musical family with three generations living under one roof you can expect some dissonance. Papa Alaev likes to believe that everyone is marching along to his tune.
Unfortunately, his daughter Ada, now a full grown adult, and a mother, is tired of being referred to as a "little girl". You can hear her displeasure with their relationship when she takes centre stage, so to speak, at his 80th birthday celebration announcing "I'm very proud to be my father's daughter even though he's not proud of me."
Thankfully, one of the grandsons is prepared to step up acknowledging that he has a lot of Papa Alaev in him. He may be the only hope that this family has of achieving any harmony. .
