Seth Singer, a young deaf man, believes in one thing: that he is no different from anyone else. Determined to prove his point, he throws his life savings into a pesticide business despite the presence of a well-established competitor. Along the way, Seth meets Alma, a double amputee, and they find romance as they bond over their disabilities. However, their relationship is threatened by the return of Nora, Seth’s high school girlfriend, who comes home after a disappointing modeling career.
