Great Short Movie
3 April 2017 | by HAL1994See all my reviews

I easily connected to this short movie, since I'm almost deaf too - I know how hard it is to have a "normal" social life being almost unable to understand what people are saying near to you. I too went through a surgery to "hear better". I thought the script was well written, very mature and to- the-ground feel, the direction is very good, and the cast is superb, especially the main character played by Ryann.
