“How can you feel a feeling unless you have the word for it?”
The only deaf member of an eccentric, intellectual family, Billy longs to be heard. When a romance with a woman who teaches him sign language opens him up to a new world of self-expression, Billy discovers that instead of trying to fit into his family's world, he can break out and find his own. Quick-witted, funny and moving Tribes is a powerful look at language, love, and what it truly means to be understood.
