Born profoundly deaf in Iraq, Lawand spent his early years unable to communicate with anyone around him.
When his family take the desperate journey to the UK, Lawand is enrolled at the Royal School for the Deaf Derby and begins to thrive. But his family face a further fight against being deported.
From the filmmaker behind the critically acclaimed The Possibilities Are Endless, this deeply moving new film documents the story of Lawand.
