Sophia’s world has been deaf for 35 years. Now she’s about to be switched on...

Synopsis

35 year-old Sophia has been profoundly deaf since she was a baby. After the birth of her son, James, she decides the time is right to explore a cochlear implant operation or ‘bionic ear’. Sophia straddles the hearing and the deaf world and communicates using sign, lip reading and speech. Because she has always been deaf, the operation is fraught with risk and uncertainty. She may not even qualify as a suitable candidate. But if she does, will this be a life changing operation? Will Sophia hear her baby James’ voice for the first time?
