The first 5 minutes of the program profiles Valerie Sutton, who explains that the realization of the difficulties deaf people experience learning to read regular texts (letters of alphabets correspond to sounds they can't associate with) prompted her to invent a system of writing sign languages. The rest of the program presents a noted and popular pianist Andre Watts who speaks about overcoming occasional mistakes and the intricacies of recording and promotes his new disc "Andre Watts live in Tokyo."
