Chronicles 200 years of deaf life in America. Using historical footage and interviews with some of today's most successful deaf citizens - including Gallaudet University President I. King Jordan and actors Marlee Matlin and Bernard Bragg - the documentary examines the shared experiences of American history - family life, education, work, sports and technology - from the perspective of deaf citizens. Poignant, and sometimes humorous, the film draws on six artistic works by deaf filmmakers who present stories of conflict, prejudice and affirmation that reach the heart of what it means to be human.
