Ruby is a 17-year-old girl who, before going to school, works with her parents and her brother to maintain the small family fishing business. As a daughter of deaf adults (CODA), Ruby is the only hearing person in her family. In order to find what she is passionate about in her life, the teenage Ella decides to join her high school choir, where she discovers her true calling and also her love. Due to her talent, her teacher encourages her to enroll in music school. However, this decision will not be easy to make. Ruby must decide between her love for music or helping her family.
Between comedy, drama and teenage romance, CODA, a remake of the French film The Bélier Family, takes us by the hand through a story that exudes warmth, sympathy and emotion, through characters that perfectly reflect the reality of the daily life of a family whose parents have hearing impairment. Directed and scripted by Sian Heder (Tallullah) and starring Emilia Jones (Ghostland), Troy Kotsur, Marlee Matlin (My Sister’s Husband), Daniel Durant and Eugenio Derbez (A Sea of Entanglements), this genre film full of sensibility speaks of bullying, love and responsibility.
