Young Elizabeth is left with her relatives, a married couple, while her mother is in hospital. The friendly husband likes her, but the wife hates kids. Her father, an often absent crook on the lam, visits her in secret one day.
Mandy was born deaf and has been mute for all of her life. Her parents believe she is able to speak if she can only be taught and so enrol her with a special teacher.Written by

When Harry Garland, Mandy's father, precipitously leaves the flat where Mandy and Christine are staying, he departs empty handed. In the next scene, coming out of the taxi, he has the bag he had brought into the flat. See more »
Darling, I hate having made you hit me. It was my fault for saying those things, and I'm sorry. Really, I am.

I have not seen this movie since I was a child, I am now 40 years old, but it still comes back to me. I loved this movie. I may have seen it twice as I remember it so well. I think it impressed upon me the ability children have to shine through adversity, and the need to believe that they really can make it, if given the right encouragement, in the right way, at the time that is right for them! I think it was a well acted and well thought out story line, with a heart rending performance by Mandy Miller. I would dearly love to see this movie again!
