Hieronymus Lorm invented a touch alphabet hundred and fifty years ago and thanks to it the deaf and blind people of all around the world are able to communicate. He was a German Hew born in Mikulov on the south of Czech Republic, near to the Austrian border. Soon people found him a brilliant pianist, „the new Mozart“, but his illness had to cost his musical career. He became deaf and blind, but thanks to his invention he lived a full creative life. He spend it in Vienna, Berlin, Dresden and Brno. The film brings Lorm’s world of silence and darkness, that is mediated through the impaired hearing and vision of other people.
