The film follows itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben during a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, who begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career — and with it his life — is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou checks the recovering heroin addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew.
Sound of Metal is scheduled to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on the 4th of December 2020.
