Inside a house that beeps, chirps, and even sings live Fred and Gloria, a blind couple. Their romance formed at a boarding school for the visually impaired, where they chose a life together, knowing they might face complications. Fifty years later, this close portrait shows a rare relationship of love and trust, without sight, but with fierce independence.
