UNSOUND by IAN WATSON
Falling in Love is the easy part. A musician’s romantic spark is ignited by a young, trans man as they work together to save his community nightclub for the deaf.
When gigging guitarist, Noah, finds himself disillusioned and transient, he quits the band of his 90’s pop icon mentor, and returns to his mother’s home in Sydney, Australia, seeking connection and rejuvenation. Clashing with his mother over old wounds, Noah seeks solace elsewhere, and soon finds himself swept up in the vibrant, passionate life and of a young, trans-man, Finn, who is a proud, Auslan-only speaker who works and runs a local centre and nightclub for his deaf community. Together, the pair traverse new ground, sharing their languages – Noah’s music and Finn’s signs – with one another. They move carefully, as this is Finn’s first relationship while he is on the precipice of diving into his trans journey. Finn struggles to spread his wings and come into his own, as he suffocates beneath his father’s over-protection and the financial strife facing his club. Determined to reapply to his music and join a community, Noah offers to help aid the club any way he can. But as the two become closer, and with no shared language to fall back on, they only risk hurting each other, as they learn to be true to themselves.
“Unsound, for me, is a story of visibility. Our characters strive to be seen and heard in every aspect of their lives, highlighting the simple power of recognition; respect, acknowledgment and acceptance. It also shows love’s ability to breach the divides which often firm beliefs – whether they be as large as political beliefs, or as small as matters of the home – can sow. Our characters learn to fight with love, not hate.” – WRITER – ALLY BURNHAM
