A world-first webdoc experience that celebrates diversity and inclusiveness through humour and a unique take on love.

When art student Emma Anderson falls in love with designer Ravi Vasavan, she is quickly put to the test. Ravi, who was born Deaf, takes Emma to a party where she is the only hearing guest. A fish-out-of-water for the first time, Emma must decide whether she is willing to fully commit to Deaf culture and her new relationship. Told in three acts (each a 2-minute live-action video), the user can switch perspective at any time, and interact with the story by signing 14 Southern Dialect Auslan signs. These interactions are made possible using artificial intelligence and gesture recognition technology.
