Takeo Chokai (40), a Deaf company employee, and hearing students of Shikoku University in Tokushima Prefecture make original DVD and send it to exchange by sign language with Deaf school children in Switzerland.

Takeo translated a Japanese folk tale into the Swiss sign language, and the students created the play based on the translation, which is recorded in DVD.

They make one DVD for a year. The third work was completed this September and was sent out.
