The documentary series When Silence Breaks follows six individuals in the ages 4 to 65 years, who by various reasons are unable to hear.

They will all get to experience the sensation of hearing sounds again. Cochlea-implant (CI) is a remedy, which can provide deaf and hearing-impaired people with a digital hearing sense, what you could also call “an artificial sense”. When Silence Breaks gives a unique insight to this process, and tries as far as possible to give a realistic idea of what that operation will mean to each individual. Watch as a person who has never experienced the sounds of nature or laughter, listens to the world for the very first time.
