Financial upheaval forces deaf girl Valmira (17) to return to her father's island and leave behind the School for the Deaf, the only home she has known since her mother's death when she was nine.

Mistrustful of her father Stamos and his new Bulgarian partner Tanya, Valmira tolerates her new circumstance only with the understanding that it is temporary; her father promises to return her to Athens next year. 

Valmira makes little effort to adapt to the world of the hearing and - stubbornly attached to the sign language - refuses to wear her hearing aid.

This leads to misinterpretation of reality and people. Tanya's son Aris (18) offers to be her ally, but his status as "other" makes him unwanted company for her.

Instead, she mixes up with Aris' worst enemy, xenophobe Marios (17), who falls in love with her, but hides his feelings from his friends.
