Theme: All people are different–the one difference between deaf and hearing people is how they hear.

Lotus, a young Cambodian girl who cannot hear or speak, is invited to become a dancer in the King’s court. pLeVar takes the opportunity to explore the vast and expressive world of non-verbal communication by watching mimes and talking with people who communicate using sign language. He also learns how deafness impacts people’s lives.
