Raised by her grandmother after her mother died when she was six, 16-year-old Valmira is forced to leave Athens when her grandmother passes away. She is sent to a faraway Greek island to be with her father and his new family, leaving behind her beloved special school for deaf children. Her Bulgarian stepmother and her stepbrother Ari are not exactly happy to have her; nor is her estranged father. If all this wasn’t enough, her new schoolmates are also hardly welcoming. To cope with her home and school situations, Valmira opts to withdraw into the familiar isolation of her deafness. All this changes when she meets Marios, a local boy with lots of affection for her but rather dubious, even dangerous, political views. As their love story unfolds, Valmira must confront her past, present, and possible future in daring new ways. An impressive first feature by promising newcomer Maria Douza, Listen is making its North American premiere at the EUFF 2023.
