Storyline

This inspirational and heartfelt documentary follows four well-known entertainers in the deaf community: a comic, a drummer, an actor and a singer as they attempt to cross over and reach mainstream audiences. These uniquely talented deaf entertainers of various disciplines overcome great challenges on their way to personal triumphs and professional success. Bob, a drummer in the world's only deaf rock band, Beethoven's Nightmare, produces the largest show in the band's 30 year history; CJ, a hugely famous and internationally renowned comic in the Deaf world, but virtually unknown to hearing audiences, fights to cross over to the mainstream by producing the first international sign language theatre festival in Los Angeles; Robert, a brilliant actor who teaches at Juilliard, struggles to survive when he becomes homeless, his health compromised by HIV; and TL, a hard of hearing singer finds herself caught between the hearing and deaf communities when she attracts her first major producer...

A wonderful film - a must for everyone to see!
30 March 2010 | by herosmith66See all my reviews

This movie was wonderful/fantastic ! I enjoyed seeing the movie. It deserves an academy award! I laughed and cried at the same time. I plan to tell all of my friends to see the movie when it is released country-wide.

I am definitely going to see it again and i highly recommend it to everyone.

It's an important film for everyone to see. I am a member of the hearing impaired community, and i feel this movie will appeal to both the hearing and deaf communities.

I first heard about the movie through a GLAD online newsletter. I want to thank GLAD for supporting this important film.
