Documents Irene Taylor Brodsky's deaf parents' complex decision to leave their world of silence and undergo a dangerous surgery to get cochlear implants. At the age of 65, Paul and Sally Taylor decided they wanted to hear their first symphonies, hear their children's voices, and talk on the phone. How will this operation transform them, their relationship with each other, and the deaf world they might leave behind? Observes two people taking a journey from silence to sound. NOTE: Contains profanity and shows surgical procedure.

    Very well made. For the most part it is "bipartisan" in showing the pros and cons of cochlear implants.
