HBO Documentary Films presents Hear and now

The daughter of 65-year-old deaf couple Paul and Sally Taylor documents their decision to receive cochlear ear implants that may allow them to hear for the very first time. Although entirely capable and successful without the surgery - Paul as a developer of early deaf-assistive technology, Sally as a strongly communicative and gifted lip reader - the surgery is expected to be life-changing. In the first half of the film the filmmaker, her siblings, and their parents discuss their childhood memories of life with hearing impairment. The second half of the film includes the surgery itself and the aftermath, as Paul and Sally recover, work through health and emotional complications, and begin the discovery process.
