This highly acclaimed doc follows deaf teen,
Aneta Brodski, an Israeli immigrant, who attends

poetry. As her artistry evolves within her ASL poetry group,
she decides to compete in a spoken word poetry slam.
Filmmaker Judy Lieff chronicles her bold entry into
Manhattan’s spoken-word slam scene, where she meets
Tahani, a hearing Palestinian- American slam poet.
