Jolene gives birth to a baby girl, Georgette, who she quickly discovers is deaf. Jolene struggles to understand Georgette's limitations, pushing her towards cochlear implants and learning to speak. Georgette, feeling isolated, drifts apart from her mother; she eventually finds a deaf family that exclusively signs. She leaves home to be with the deaf community that Jolene denies.
