“How can you feel a feeling unless you have a word for it?”

Billy is the only Deaf member of a Jewish family living in London. This loving and idiosyncratic family has tried to raise him as part of the hearing world, teaching him to read lip but neglecting to use sign language in their home. When Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman who is becoming Deaf but has grown up as the only hearing member of her family, his worldview is blown wide open. As Sylvia begins teaching Billy sign language and introducing him to the Deaf community, he and his family are forced to grapple with questions of belonging.
