The first movie is "CODA", currently streaming on Apple TV and starring Marlee Matlin and Emilia Jones. "As a child of deaf adults (called a CODA), Ruby is the only hearing person in her home. When she discovers a passion for singing, Ruby must choose between family obligations and her dreams. Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival".
