Katja, 16 years old, and Cathrine, 8, have a unique relationship to music, nature and sensation per se. Both girls are blind but have developed their other senses and they use them much more keenly than most people around them.
Filmmaker Erlend E. Mo interprets their perceptual world that is as rich and nuanced as any seeing person's, only different. The film portrays the intimacy and intensity of the girls' environment in few words, affording glimpses into a poetic, subjective experience and making us see a familiar world with fresh eyes.
