In this coming of age drama, Greek director Maria Douza follows a deaf teenage girl, Valmira, who has to leave her special Athens school and return to her father’s island where she is confronted by the danger of intolerance, most shockingly — her own. When an unexpected turn of events changes the odds for all, Valmira is compelled to “listen” – not necessarily with her ears – to the truth of those around her as much as her own.
