A deaf man takes a chance on a risky surgery in hopes of hearing for the first time in his life.
Director Chase Matthews offers this moving documentary about Justin Garrett, a completely deaf young man who agreed to undergo radical cochlear implant surgery that could possibly make him hear for the first time. Matthews follows Justin as he prepares for, submits to and recovers from the high-stakes surgery: Success will reverse Justin's condition, but failure will irrevocably destine him to a lifetime of total silence.
