Synopsis

Ruben, a drummer and former heroin addict, lives life on the road with his girlfriend Lou, travelling around in a R.V. and playing shows as the two-person metal band BlackGammon. Overnight, Ruben loses his hearing and has no idea where to turn, desperate to maintain his normal life but overcome by panic and anxiety. After a medical diagnosis that does nothing to quell Ruben’s fears, the two travel to a commune for the small section of society that are both deaf and in recovery from addiction. It is here that Ruben must confront his future and learn to adapt to a new world, one without sound and therefore without music. Empathetic without being condescending and led by a gripping and committed performance from Riz Ahmed, Sound of Metal explores the nuances and philosophies of the wider deaf community.
