Set in Los Angeles, the series follows two deaf friends, Kate and Michael. Both of them have troubles at their life such as the break up and the bad ratings at work. As friends, they have to be together to overcome their hard times.
It's an unconventional love story that needs another season to figure out what it really wants to be, and how best to get there. At least the most important elements -- or both of them, anyway -- are in place.
This Close is groundbreaking, necessary, and the fact that it is a genuinely great series - down to its writing, performances, and subject matter - only proves that a platform for this kind of storytelling is long overdue.
