A hearing impaired woman is befriended by a social worker.
Rosanna Arquette gives an emmy deserved performance as a hearing impaired woman who meets and falls in love with a social worker played by Richard Thomas. Dennis Quaid and Candy Clark co-star in this compelling tearjerker. I'll be the first to admit that this movie brought me to tears of joy and tears of sorrow a number of times. If you get the chance to view this adaption, please do so.
