Synopsis

Suddenly laid off from a factory staffed by deaf-mute people, Sveta’s house loan pushes her into a highly unethical line of work in this controversial film that unfolds almost entirely in sign language.

Saat ia tiba-tiba diberhentikan dari sebuah pabrik yang mempekerjakan orang tuna rungu dan tuna wicara, tagihan cicilan rumah memaksa Sveta untuk melakukan sebuah pekerjaan yang tidak etis. Film yang kontroversial ini hampir seluruhnya diceritakan menggunakan bahasa isyarat.
