Plot Summary
Cousins Heather and Peter Artinian -- ages 6 and almost 2, respectively -- are deaf. Their condition could be changed by a cochlear implant, a device that stimulates hearing. The benefits are obvious, but this documentary focuses on why the children's families face a tough decision. There are concerns about how the device will change the recipient's relationship with deaf culture and whether there can ever be a true connection between those who hear sounds and those who hear only silence.
