This striking directorial debut and moving true story is about a man who heard his music, and released it to improve the lives of millions of people with disabilities. Ron Livingston (Band of Brothers) enthusiastically portrays Richard Pimentel, a brilliant public speaker who went to Vietnam to “earn the right to have a point of view”, and lost most of his hearing in an explosion.
