Tomorrow everything can be dark

Franka (27) suffers from Usher Syndrome. She is deaf and has limited eyesight. She went to a boarding school when she was 14 years old. She only saw her family in the weekends and during the holidays. Thus the contact with her parents, brother and sister slowly decreased. Now Franka is living alone and she does packaging work at a sheltered workshop.

Morgen kan het donker zijn’ (Tomorrow everything can be dark) shows her daily life. Her impairments make her life really complicated. She does not readily reconcile herself to the situation, even though her stubbornness does not make things easier. She tells her story with the help of a signer. Franka will not be trifled with and this comes to a climax during a talk with her parents at home.
