Louisa is 23 when she has to face the fact that she cannot hear anymore. All her life she has tried hard to be like everyone else: Communication was a constant fight of lip reading, always fearing to fail. Louisa starts to study sign language and against all apparent odds she decides not to get a hearing implant and finally decides to move out from her parents' flat. This film is an acoustic and sensual journey inbetween hearing and seeing.
