Andrew is a lawyer. One day, his partner (a nice-looking woman) takes him to an art exposition, where he meets Jane, a deaf woman who painted some of the stuff there. He also meets her violent husband. Soon, Jane calls in at his studio to ask him about the divorce. He goes to her house,while the husband's out, and the average for their meetings occur: sex.

During the second of these meetings, the husband calls in and Andrew, trying to defend himself, takes a gun from a shelf and shoots the husband. He throws the body to a river, but the police finds it and all the evidence points to Jane. He will defend her in the trial, but at what cost? After hearing loads about MArlee mAtlin, I finally saw a movie with her. She's rather good, rather pretty, and convincing in her role (yes, I did realize she's truly deaf). But the surprise is Michael Dudikoff here, in a sort of dramatic role. He's not as good as in the "Bounty Hunter" films but he is surprising as the lawyer. The rest of the cast is rather good too.

It is not a movie I would have rented, but after seeing it, it's worth it.
