In 1983, after many decades of deterioration, writer and theologian John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he documented his experiences on audio cassette. Expanding upon the Emmy Award- winning short film of the same name, actors lip-sync to the voices of the family. The result is a poetic and intimate story of loss, rebirth, and transformation.

Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
