It is a story of an extraordinary,
beautiful young deaf woman, who enjoys life and against all odds wants to
change the world. Iwona Cichosz is deaf. Her parents, sister and grandparents
cannot hear. Thanks to the stubbornness of her grandmother she learned how to
speak. Now she can turn her deafness into an asset. She takes the viewers on a
journey through her world. We observe Iwona’s everyday life – the obstacles she
has to overcome in order to function in the world of the hearing, as well as
her difficult family relations. As a young girl she traveled and performed with
a street theater. As an activist for her community, as one of their goals, she
wants the sign language to be recognized as a foreign language. We meet Iwona
at a special moment – the day before the Miss Deaf International finale in Las
Vegas. She travels to America to compete at the beauty pageant, but also to
meet other deaf people, who are not afraid to make their dreams come true.
