Jimmy is married to the abusive Frank, but she's building a nest egg so she can leave. For a year, she's been deaf as a result of one of his beatings. One night, he pushes her over the stairwell, and she ends up in the hospital. When a charred body in her husband's car is pulled from a pond, the cops want to talk to her, but she bolts for her sister's, loses her savings pass-book, and then learns someone has emptied her bank account. She's goes on the run, with the same cops on her trail, and eventually realizes Frank may not be dead. Getting back her money, facing Frank, satisfying the police, and finding her freedom may be more than she can handle. Written by
Portions of this movie were filmed at the Kern County Courthouse in Bakersfield, California. Since the film was depicting Los Angeles Police officers, "Los Angeles Police Department" was printed on one of the office doors and remained there for several weeks after the film was completed. Members of the public were very confused. See more »
When Jimmy is pointing a revolver at Officer Ramsey in the rest room, and later when she shoots Frankie with the same gun, it is obvious from the frontal camera angle that the weapon is not loaded. Its chambers are clearly empty. See more »
Fonda proves to be amazingly subtle and focused in her role as an abused deaf wife. The mood and tone of this film was compelling and unique, and though the story itself was unoriginal and at times contrived, I found myself totally drawn into the characters and style of the picture as a whole.
