About


“Language - that most human invention - can enable what,
in principle, should not be possible. It can allow all of us, even the congenitally blind, to see with another person’s eyes.”

Oliver Sacks

Story

 

On a remote island off the coast of Maine, Liv, after years of silence, begins to weave a language out of Shakespeare's words. A driven neurologist, brought to the island to protect her, commits her to a psychiatric hospital. She becomes a full-blow rebel in the hospital; her increasing violence threatens to keep her locked up for life as she fights for her voice and her freedom. At a tipping point for otherness in our current climate, THE SOUNDING champions it.
