What is CODA About?
Ruby, a seventeen-year-old high schooler, is a CODA, a child of deaf adults, and the only hearing member in her family. His father has a fishing business, and the teenager wakes up before sunrise to help him and his brother as an interpreter. Unfortunately, her responsibility is not just limited to negotiating the price of the fish the family catches but also explain to his parents the embarrassing details of their sex life after learning it from the doctor. It goes without saying that juggling family responsibilities and school life ultimately has its toll on the teenager who has to endure taunts from her classmates for being untidy and lazy.
Luckily she finds an escape when she joins her high school’s choir club, which, even though briefly, helps her forget all her troubles. However, Bernardo, her choirmaster, believes that she is talented enough to make it big and starts training her to audition for the esteemed Berklee College of Music. As she follows the path laid out by her teacher, Ruby ultimately finds herself torn between her family responsibilities and her dreams.
