A young man is ostracized by his classmates after he bullies a deaf girl to the point where she moves away. Years later, he sets off on a path for redemption.
At the very beginning of the movie (where "My Generation" by "The Who" plays), when Shoya and his friends enter his mother's hairdresser salon, Nishimiya with long hair can be seen looking at a magazine about hairstyles in the salon. The next day when Nishimiya starts to Shoya's school, she has short, bob-cut hair.
I couldn't change. I couldn't protect you again. I was the same coward.
Shoko Nishimiya: You can change from now on.
During Ishida and Ueno's conversation at the crosswalk, Nishimiya is seen holding the pouch that Ishida had given to her as a gift. However, it disappears after Ueno sprints across the street and removes Nishimiya's earpiece; it is nowhere to be seen on her person or on the ground.
Though the official Roman-character title used on merchandise in Japan, and on the movie's posters, trailers, video boxes, video menus and so on in English-speaking countries is "A Silent Voice: The Movie" (often shortened to just "A Silent Voice"), the Roman-character title which appears on-screen in the full movie itself is instead "The Shape of Voice", which is an awkward mistranslation into English of "Koe no katachi".
