In 1945, a young boy arrives in a small Georgia town on a bus from which his mother was abducted and murdered. Alone he sits quietly and everyone becomes convinced that he is deaf and mute. Deciding that silence offers some power and protection, the boy decides to remain mute and just listens to all that is being said around him by people who think that he cannot hear. Written by

One of the best well written comedy/drama's ever!!
Truly catches you even while it is starting, with the music. Everyone that was cast was perfect in their respective roles. It catches the flow of how things really were at the period of time it was representing. It introduces both heart wrenching feelings, and sense of humor at once, which is like a piece of art in itself. It has the same sort of feel as Fried Green Tomatoes, or Driving Miss Daisy. So if those are movies you really enjoy, sit back this one will please you completely. Bernadette peters sings like an angel at the end credits, it is really beautiful, so of course it is to short!! Really is a 5 star or 10 out of 10 movie!!
