Silent Music

EVERYTHING IN THE Gomez family seems perfect, but appearances are deceiving. Kenneth and his wife Teresa are deaf, and this isolates them. There is also a communication breakdown that prevents the family from having genuine relationships with each other. It is Melissa, the youngest of three hearing children, who embarks on a journey of discovery, exploring delicate subjects never before discussed. Through difficult confrontations and unexpected revelations, Melissa is ultimately forced to ask herself: Are some secrets best left hidden?
