Dan Miller (Daniels) and his wife Laura (Matlin) only want what’s best for their happy and healthy 8-year-old son Adam (Noah Valencia), who’s been deaf since age four. Adam’s father (who is hearing) becomes intrigued by a technology (cochlear implants) that may make it possible after surgery for Adam to hear sounds. For Dan, an operation would be worth the risk involved. He believes Adam’s life would be easier and more complete if he could hear.
Adam’s mother, who is deaf, opposes the procedure, believing it would make Adam feel that something’s wrong with him, something that needs “fixing.”
This is a close-knit, loving family – but a family facing a moment of truth. Together or apart, Dan and Laura must make a life-altering decision on behalf of their son.
