Storyline

C (39) is a sound designer. She spends many hours alone, recording foley effects, editing, mixing. The studio is her last refuge: a place where she can avoid dealing with her broken relationships with an ex-partner, an elderly mother and a co-worker.

C is starting to be out-of-sync. Like a badly synched film, her brain has begun to process sound later than images. As the delay increases, C is forced to quit her job, to deal with her mother’s death and to rethink her life completely.

Over time, she will discover that her disability is not just a stigma. It will allow her to make a living in a surprising way, and it will open the door to the world of the deaf. There she will meet Max (45) her sign language teacher, with whom she will have an intense relationship, unthinkable before the onset of her delay.

One day, synchrony simply returns to C’s brain.

Suddenly she’s cured, but she’s not the same anymore. Her sensory odyssey has made her mature. And now she has a second chance. It’s up to her not to let it escape.
