Model, activist, and producer Nyle DiMarco's latest project is a moving Netflix documentary titled Audible

The 36-minute short film follows the real-life story of Amaree McKenstry-Hall, a hearing-impaired high school football player at the Maryland School for the Deaf, as he tries to come to terms with the death of a close friend while keeping the school’s winning football streak alive. 

"The graduating students face mounting pressures of entering the hearing world while tackling adversity and demanding to be heard in this moving coming-of-age story," DiMarco said of the film on Instagram.

Deadline goes on to describe it as a "story about kids who stand up to adversity and demand to be heard. They face conflict, but approach the future with hope — shouting to the world that they exist and they matter."

Audible is on the heels of DiMarco's Deaf U series, a groundbreaking glimpse of the lives of young deaf students at Gallaudet University. If this new project is anything like the last, we can expect a moving, educational, and heartwarming tale.

Expect the documentary to premiere on Netflix later this year.
