Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
After his parents are killed in an automobile accident, the young boy in this picture won't speak. He is given into the care of a woman psychologist who boards the grief-stricken lad in a room with her son, trusting that when his feelings allow it, he will speak again. When a children's theater troupe comes into town, the enchantment of their whole way of being causes the child to open up.
