While still a student, Evelyn Glennie learned that she was going deaf. Rather than abandon her study of music, in which she had shown such talent, she instead turned her focus toward percussion instruments and developed her ability to feel the sound through her body. This documentary follows her as she performs in New York, Germany and Tokyo, sharing her insights into the nature of music and the ways in which we experience it.

„This is one of the best documentary I have ever seen. I loved it from very first scene till the last. Beautiful sounds, Amazing cinematography. You have to feel the sound to enjoy the movie. My best part of the movie was when she was explaining about Silence…Once of the heaviest sounds we have…and its kinda scary…and its beautiful in a way. I think only a true artist can understand this movie better. I liked the way she was exploring the possibilities wherever, whenever sound could be produced…it was more a like a child like curiosity…trying to understand what is this sound and how it touches me…vibrates me…inside out. And it was amazing she could find a rhythm in everything she touched.”
