SYNOPSIS
Inspired by a true story, Nada is a deaf ballerina who loves life and has a passion for dancing. She never lets her disability get in her way, but it does for the first time when she tries to express her feelings for her colleague Omar, a blind pianist. Will both disabilities be a barrier of communication or will they find a way to express their feelings for each other? Their final performance will reveal it all.
