Actress Maureen Lipman makes an impassioned appeal to raise funds for Sense, a charity for deafblind people. She explains how, as someone who relies on observation for what she does, it seems miraculous that a life deprived of sight and sound can be given meaning, joy, and hope. That is why she has been a long-term supporter of the charity. The film features 25-year-old Roger, who has been deafblind since birth, and Maureen Lipman visits a Sense Centre to meet Richard, whose sight and hearing are deteriorating, and who is being taught hand-on-hand signing to prevent him losing his ability to communicate.
