Years later Sarah finds out about a girl LISA who is close to her age that has gone Deaf on an Arc traveling to another solar system. Lisa also cannot be cured due to not having access to Earth.

The Writer: Marven Likness

Actor, Writer, Sign Language Advocate/Consultant After an incident that cost me most of my hearing in 2016 I have reactivated my creative side. Being a part time actor I channeled my thoughts into script form as a way to deal with my new reality. Although I am always working on a multitude of projects I keep coming back to a series I created called One in a Trillion. With it's first release to the public in 2020 it has been amazing to see and hear the feed back I get. FB fan page: Go to bio
