A Silent Voice (2016)

Is redemption possible when looming over you are past actions that you bitterly regret? That is a question at the heart of A Silent Voice, an animated feature adapted from a manga series written and illustrated by Yoshitoki Ōima. The story follows Shouya Ishida, who spent the sixth grade leading his class in bullying Shouko Nishimiya, a new classmate who is deaf. The class turns against Shouya when his actions result in Shouko transferring to another school, leaving him isolated and bullied.
