The Plot, Courtesy of Hulu:
The film follows Marcus (Johnson), an audio obsessed high school senior who learns he must undergo brain surgery that will render him deaf. He decides to seize control of his fate by recording the Ultimate Playlist of Noise – a bucket list of all his favorite sounds. Once he sets out, he meets Wendy (Brewer), a wildly charming, struggling musician who is trying to escape to New York for her chance at a life-changing opportunity.
Together they check off his list as they make their way across the country, until painful revelations force Marcus to face reality and his future without sound.
