Experience the mysterious world hidden behind the walls of a Polish boarding school for young hearing-impaired students. The film introduces their universe with subtle observations and without a spoken word. Getting to know their habits, gestures and facial expressions we find an environment full of acceptance, understanding and airiness, so different from the world outside. The film allows us to share the children’s emotions, their visions of the world, and eventually, to hear their voices as communication barriers between the worlds of adults and children, and between the deaf and the hearing are transgressed.
