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.

Oh being desi means you know like 10 different languages. Like if you know one really well, it's shouldn't be too hard to figure out others
I am intrigued and curious. Mostly how a group of deaf kids can have a cooking class.
Lol one of my life goals is to be a polyglot but I can barely speak French and English
