Free is a deaf woman in a long-term relationship with Maggie, a professor of poetry. Ram is a Sanskrit scholar starting a relationship with Free’s sister Vic, a two-time loser at love. But love is hard and things get complicated when Free and Ram accidentally strike up a nocturnal email conversation. Four people struggle to communicate, connect, and find love, in this bilingual (ASL and English) romance that will take you on a journey inside your own heart. “… a fascinating brew of emotion, wit and intellect that challenges its audience to reassess how the form of communication shapes understanding.” –Star Tribune
