STORY Sometimes the answer is as simple as learning to listen. Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf.

When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again... until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but is it already too late??
