The Handicapped are human beings

In this remake of a Jane Wyman film, Rosanna Arquette takes the role of Belinda.She is a deaf girl,who finds a light in her dark world. The little shelter Belinda lives in suddenly shines with hope;Richard Thomas plays a visiting aid worker, and he teaches her sign language. When Kyle,played by Dennis Quaid,abuses and rapes Belinda during a town party,Belinda's father has his suspicions about this "new guy in town"; The secret is revealed that his daughter is pregnant.

Although Arquette appears to be a helpless waif, she is determined to fight for her child. The motherly instinct within her brings out strength and courage.There are sweet scenes of tenderness; We hear Belinda pray over her father who dies accidentally by Kyle's anger, and Thomas says to her "I will take you and Johnny away from here", when she shoots her assailant in defense.This movie shows how the disabled can take pride, and prove themselves in a world that does not understand them.
