About This Movie

Eleven-year-old Jonas, who has a cochlear implant, is struggling to learn the first movement of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”—which the composer wrote as he was losing his hearing. Jonas’ grandparents have been deaf for most of their lives. This film tells an intergenerational tale of deafness and a personal portrait of three lives, and the discoveries that lie beyond loss.
