    • Synopsis
    • Shoya Ishida is a reckless young boy whose daily life is centered around school and his friends. Bored, he spends his free time defying his comrades with increasingly extravagant challenges. When deaf Shoko Nishimiya joins their school in the middle of the year, some changes happen in the class’ day-to-day habits. From polite interest to exasperation caused by communication problems, Shoya grabs the opportunity to level up: mockery, bullying, persecution... all this under the indifferent gaze of the teachers. But everythings changes dramatically when Shoko nally gives in and leaves school while Shoya is summoned to the principal’s of ce. Considered as responsible by everyone, he is singled out and given the same treatment. A couple of years later, Shoya, stricken by remorse, starts looking for Shoko to apologize for his behaviour.
