Billy, the only deaf child in a family that could hear, was raised inside the family’s fiercely idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon. Though his family attempts to raise him like a normal child — training him to read lips instead of sign language — Billy adapts brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways without truly feeling what it’s like to be heard.. It’s not until Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he is finally introduced to the deaf community his family sheltered him from his entire life. As Billy tries to find his identity among his true family and the “extended family” of the deaf community, his interactions reveal the importance of belonging within a community that truly understands what it means to be understood.
