‘Music was his world. Then silence revealed a new one’
Metal drummer and ex-addict Ruben’s world is thrown into turmoil when, on tour with his girlfriend, he realises that his hearing, already fading, has taken a sudden and devastating turn for the worse. Numbing fear and angry denial take over. If he can’t recover his hearing, who will he become? In a home for deaf addicts, Ruben must choose between his new Deaf community and fighting to hold on to what has always defined him. A poignant portrait of a man finding his way to a new revelation.
Riz Ahmed gives a superb performance as Ruben. Also starring Olivia Cooke. Winner of two Academy Awards.
