Father Tongue

Father Tongue

A relationship between Dror, a deaf child, and his father, Moshik, who finds it difficult to accept his deafness. Moshik insists Dror goes to a school for hearing children, but Dror feels rejected and experiences bullying. Moshik doesn’t read the signals, even when Dror angrily breaks his precious hearing implant in protest.
The rift between them grows bigger, when Dror violently attacks the class bully and is expelled from school. Moshik first sees his distress, and the two have to learn to communicate in order to find solutions.
