Prepared to be moved by this documentary by Channel 4, Unreported World:

Patrick Otema, 15 was born profoundly deaf. In the remote area of Uganda where he lives there are no schools for deaf children, and he has never had a conversation. Raymond Okkelo, a sign language teacher, hopes to change all this and offer Patrick a way out of the fearful silence he has known his whole life.

A touching story on the importance of communication and how untreated hearing loss can shut people off from society.
