Synopsis: “From fixing the class computer to repairing old radios, 12 year old Iris is a tech genius. She is the only deaf person in her school, so people often treat her like she is not very smart. If you ever felt like no one was listening to you, then you know how hard that can be. When she learns about Blue 55, a real whale who is unable to speak to other whales, Iris understands how he must feel. Then she has an idea: She should invent a way to sing to him but he is three thousand miles away. How will she play her song for him?”
