PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

After three years in the Peace Corps, James, a young speech therapist joins the faculty of a school for the deaf where he is to teach lip-reading. He meets Sarah, a school dropout, totally deaf from birth, and estranged both from the world of hearing and from those who could compromise to enter that world. Fluent in sign language, James tries, with little success, to help Sarah, but gradually the two fall in love, and marry. At first their relationship is a happy and glowing one, as the gulf of silence between them seems to be bridged by their desire to understand each other's needs and feelings, but discord soon develops as Sarah becomes militant for the rights of the deaf, and rejects any hint that she is being patronized and pitied. In the end, the chasm between the worlds of sound and silence seems almost too great to cross...but love and compassion hold the hope of reconciliation, and deeper, fuller understanding of differences which, in the final essence, can unite as well as divide.
