Summary   :   

Jascha is a young deaf art student who doesn’t care much about the hearing world. But he can't escape it if he wants to fulfill his ambitions. Armed with a camera, he visits Europe’s only home for elderly deaf people and tries to find out how these people have lived their lives. They tell him about their youth, when sign language was forbidden, and about their struggles against embarrassment and indignities. His fight for equality and respect, both as an individual and as a member of a cultural minority, the Deaf community, echo the life experiences of the elderly. The denial of access, of equal opportunities to live, work and participate in society are on top of the agenda of the Deaf movement. Jascha’s camera images, are comments on what he encounters, and reflections on his own life.
