Inga Can Hear is a coming-of-age story of 16 year old Inga, the only hearing member of a deaf family living in the remote Latvian country-side. Since the age of 7, Inga has been the family's interpreter in the hearing world. Her role in the family has forced her to grow up quickly, and she fluctuates between acting as a responsible young woman and a moody teenager. Inga dreams of escaping her role as the family's interpreter and decides to leave her home to attend high school in the nearby city. But she runs into conflict with her classmates and her family starts falling apart. Then, one day, the outside world learns that Inga is actually Edward. Is Inga herself finally being heard?
