After Astrid Addleston - former Cambridge law student and resident all-rounder - crashes into a tree at too-many-kilometres an hour, she finds herself lacking something very important- her hearing.

With only prejudice and a despondent mood for company, Astrid resigns herself to the idea that her life and ambitions are in ruins.

A pretty girl and a boisterous cooking class full of deaf teenagers are determined to show her otherwise.
