Summary:
Lara, the hearing child of deaf parents, moves effortlessly between the worlds of sound and sign. One Christmas Lara's aunt presents her with a peculiarly meaningful gift--one that pushes Lara down the road to self-discovery--and out of the comfortable nest she has shared with her parents. Alert to nuances of the politics of deafness, the film is about more than deafness, hearing, and the way two worlds intersect.  Read more...

Abstract:

Lara, the hearing child of deaf parents, moves effortlessly between the worlds of sound and sign. One Christmas Lara's aunt presents her with a peculiarly meaningful gift--one that pushes Lara down the road to self-discovery--and out of the comfortable nest she has shared with her parents. Alert to nuances of the politics of deafness, the film is about more than deafness, hearing, and the way two worlds intersect. The film invites the viewer to escape their individual time and space, to begin to understand what it might be like to live in someone else's.
