In the outskirts of London, Portuguese couple and parents of three, Bela and Jota, struggle to make ends meet. When a misunderstanding arises at school with their deaf daughter, the British social services grow concerned for the safety of their children. LISTEN portrays the tireless battle of these immigrant parents against the law to keep their family together.
“Lúcia Moniz (Love Actually) is a Portuguese mother pitted against social services in this deeply moving piece of social-realist cinema… scary and overwhelmingly sad.” —The Guardian
