Raised on a remote island by her grandfather Lionel, Liv has never spoken. When Lionel (Harris Yulin) discovers he's dying, he calls the son of his best friend and a former protégé, Michael (Teddy Sears), to the island and asks him to protect Liv's independence alongside Lionel’s attorney (Frankie Faison). That night, as Lionel is reading to Liv, his voice fails him. Liv picks up the book of Shakespeare and begins: first reading, then weaving a language from Shakespeare's words. She is committed to a psychiatric hospital and becomes a full-blown rebel in the hospital; her increasing violence threatens to keep her locked up for life. At a tipping point for otherness in our current climate, The Sounding champions it.
