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

Well! Someone who can talk. What's your name?
Uh, Joan of Arc. I love bonfires!
I see you have some Dickie Devil records, for the blaze no doubt.
Oh, no. These are some Frank Sinatra albums of my mother's that I've been longing to incinerate for a while.

I taped ' What the Deaf Man Heard' on night when it was on late, a few days later, I watched it and found it to be an EXTREMELY good movie, which I have yet to date, taped over. It is a really good watch, and Matthew Modine is a really good actor, I recommend it to anyone.
