SYNOPSIS

Two Paths tells about lives of two deaf people - the way they live, think and work. Gohar likes painting. She dreams to sell her paintings and travel around the world, to help her parents and her brother's family. Hayk is a dancer. He can’t imagine his life without dance. Hayk wins the first prize in the most prestigious dancing competition of Armenia. His dream is to have a place to teach dancing. Their paths are different, and at the same time close to each other. The film is an attempt to penetrate into a world, which is very rich in colors. A world that we have isolated from us.
