Marie, Jascha and Björn are deaf. They attend a regular grammar school and take lessons with hearing pupils. There are interpreters in the classroom to help the deaf pupils to follow the lessons. In this abbreviated version the focus is on Marie.
How do these kids cope? How do their hearing classmates react? Is this a form of integration?
'Marie' is the short version (24') of the documentary 'Deaf, so what!' (50'). This documentary was originally published on VHS.
