Ode to Pablo

Season 2019 Episode 18 | 12m 12s

Challenged to a basketball game by local boys, Pablo, a queer, deaf Latino, agrees to play. He does not reveal much about himself, but let’s his basketball skill speak for itself. He’s enjoying the game, when an unexpected incident makes it clear to the other teens that Pablo is deaf. Despite assumptions about each, and, however brief, Pablo makes a connection with one of the boys.
