The title stands for Children of Deaf Adults. It’s a very moving account of a family where 3 members are deaf and 1 the daughter, can hear and interestingly enough has a very pleasing singing voice. This is a family of fishermen -Ocean fishing. And the Coast Guard demands that a hearing person be aboard with them. The daughter fills this role. But when she meets a choral group leader who encourages her to have further schooling in music -there is a conflict. Marlee Matlin is very good as well as the rest of the cast.
