The characters of the film are three young people. Same as we are with you. They study at the university, work, spend time with their family, listen to music and dance. But there is one "but". All of them at different times completely lost their hearing and were doomed to spend the rest of their days in complete silence, but thanks to a happy occasion they returned from the world of absolute deafness into a world of sounds, speech and music.
The film immerses the viewer into the atmosphere of other life, other countries and events. The viewer can look at the world in a new way, learn a little more about our habitual and uncharted opportunity to hear.

Today Nikolai studies at the Law Faculty of St. Petersburg University, is engaged in sports, writes poetry, including those inspired by the music of Beethoven. We decided to follow his fate and the fate of two other outstanding young people who can be considered special, people "X", and it is possible and quite common ... "
