Sometimes our internal voice and our external voice responds differently to massive chaos with coping mechanisms in a complex, dangerous world. Resilient Silence is the divergent path between two brothers living in futuristic America.
Deaf from a childhood illness, Julius is confused and longs for acceptance and understanding from his mom, educators, friends, and especially from his estranged brother. Angry after a series of horrific events causing increased death and loss, border patrol private Jeremy wants life to be normal, the way it was before their father died.
Navigating extreme personal differences, they eventually converge to compete in the Bloomsday road race and learn the hidden strength of resilient silence that comes from being Deaf in a hearing world.
