Tribes is a thoughtful yet funny portrayal of how one family navigates the fact that their son Billy is deaf. Growing up Billy's family didn't  teach him sign language in an effort to make him feel "normal". After meeting Sylvia, a hearing woman raised by her deaf parents, Billy is introduced to a whole new world; one where he can communicate and express his voice for the first time and this causes tension within his family.
