Miriam has two passions in life: teaching Mexican Sign Language and acting in a theatre group.
As a CODA (A Child of D/deaf Adult) who lives with her deaf girlfriend who doesn’t use sign language, her hearing is paramount to her experiences. Yet when Miriam herself begins to lose her hearing, she refuses to confront a future in which her passions may not be sustainable. With input from multiple deaf advisors and featuring an extensive deaf and hard of hearing cast, the film immerses the audience in Miriam’s experience and her emotional turmoil through innovative sound design, while asking us to contemplate what it is to hear, see and speak.
