Tristan’s father is deaf, and also happens to be an amazing football player. His dream is to coach his son’s team, but because of his impairment, the club denies him a fair chance. Tristan is disappointed: he knows his father would be a phenomenal coach, so he sets out to prove it. ‘Hear This!’ is a sweet, inspirational documentary that teaches us that any obstacle can be overcome if we set our minds to it.
