video for the deaf sister captivates 3 brothers, mom sews

a french missionary visits a family to teach the older, deaf sister sign language (her hand is seen in the right, lower corner); a video is shown on her iPad that captures the attention of the 3 younger brothers who ceased playing with their homemade wood blocks -plus a matchbox- that they were building into small walls. The mother sews animals on a cloth in the background, hardly raising her eyes.
