Dominika Kulczyk together with Kulczyk Foundation travels to the Nyabihu Demonstration School for the Deaf in Rwanda, where deaf and hearing-impaired children learn both the sign language and school knowledge, and also acquire skills that are crucial in everyday life. Not only are they given a chance to have a life that they dream of, but more importantly they are given a chance to have dreams at all. In this documentary, we learn the story of new pupils that start attending the Nyabihu Demonstration School for the Deaf "“ Eric and Kevine. We witness touching scenes: children, thanks to the hearing aids, hear the so far unheard voices of their parents, and say the words "œmom" and "œdad" for the very first time. What used to be impossible for them is now becoming possible.
