Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A deaf 10-year-old from a remote Australian fishing village sends his quiet community into a panic after he learns that his sister will soon be leaving for boarding school, and runs away to a deserted island. The traumatic experience proves to have a silver lining, however, when it shows the troubled young boy the importance of trusting his loved ones, and learning to live with his disability.
