The film explores the communication barriers caused by wearing masks and the social isolation that many deaf people have lived through the epidemic. The film, fascinating and touching, and starring Wilma Jackson and Sophie Stone, vividly expresses what the artist and director thinks. The performance in the film was inspired by a poem Mager wrote, which was completed through remote collaboration with hearing-impaired actors during lockdown.

The film was shot in a green screen studio, and all actors maintained social distancing during filming. Jon Street, a projection expert, collaborated with Mager to edit the film using 3D imaging software and visual special effects. In the end, one night, the video was successfully projected on a building in Bristol.

About 15 percent of the global population, almost 1 billion people, are disabled, yet many lack the support to be able to enjoy many of the experiences that able-bodied people enjoy.

Many disabled people choose not to try new cultural experiences because too often they are unaware of how accessible the experience will be for them, and this leads to fewer disabled people frequenting theaters, concert halls and museums.
