Aneta Brodski, a deaf Israeli teen, attends a school for the deaf in Queens, N.Y. where she explores slam poetry using American Sign Language. Proud of her deafness but aware of the isolation it brings, Aneta utilizes her unique experiences to create a powerful poetic art form. When Aneta meets Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet, the two create a deaf/hearing duet in which they explore their shared and personal experiences and generate a new form of slam poetry which speaks to the deaf as well as the hearing.
