Since the earliest days in her childhood Lara has had a difficult but important task. Both her parents are deaf-mute and Lara has to translate from sign-language to the spoken word and vice versa when her parents want to communicate with other people. Getting older and more mature she becomes interested in music and starts to play clarinet very successfully. However her parents are deaf, they cannot share Lara's musical career. The day comes when Lara has to decide between her parents and her own ambitions.Written by
How does snow sound? What does it say to you?
It says, "Crunch, crunch, brr, brr."
What are "crunch" and "brr"? What kind of words are they?
To tell the truth, snow doesn't say much. It's even said that snow swallows every sound. When snow is on the ground, everything is much quieter.
Honest? Snow makes the world quiet? That's beautiful.

Realistic look at life with deaf parents...
I recently rented the movie, "Beyond the Silence," and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
As a sign language interpreter, I have read many books about CODA's (Children of Deaf Adults). I think that "Beyond the Silence" does a pretty good job of showing the difficulty and extra responsibilities that a child with deaf parents experiences.
If you enjoyed this movie, I would suggest reading the book "At a Loss for Words." It's a very touching story about a girl growing up with deaf parents and coming to terms with her feeling of guilt and anger and also love for them.
I'm not trying to be "preachy," but PLEASE don't call deaf people "mute." That term is negative and out-of-date.
