Synopsis:

Set in rural England, we follow the story of profoundly deaf child, Libby. Her middle-
class family; consisting of two elder siblings, a constantly overwhelmed mother and a
workaholic husband, seek out a quick fix to make their 'broken' child more equipped to
handle the real world. But when they employ the help of a deaf-specialised social
worker it becomes apparent that Libby is not the one who needs to be fixed.
