According to The Hollywood Reporter, Unspoken tells the story of Xu (Zhang), an estranged father and an ex-cop who is separated from his deaf daughter and her new life at an American university. After his daughter’s sudden death, the tragedy pierces Xu with grief and guilt that he couldn’t be present to protect his child. Xu is convinced thatthe local authorities are after the wrong suspect to explain her death and that racism has compromised the investigation. Together with a young Chinese translator (Tien), Xu sets out to unravel the truth behind his daughter’s death. While doing so, he will not only seek justice but find redemption as he reconnects with his daughter through the process of bearing witness to her life as a young adult.
