Documentary about the artist Bram Cox (1934-1998). She was a visual artist before going blind, after which she worked with sound. The film follows her as she develops a sound composition in which she works with sound recorded in real time and then electronically distorted. Although the film makes clear to sighted people how important sound is to the blind, it focuses on Bram's artistry. Sounds are recorded to be included in a concert in a Czech monastery. Just like the other artists taking part in an event there, Bram works with materials, in her case sound, which are collected on the spot.
