Synopsis by Hal Erickson
College girl Nancy McKeon, up until recently the picture of normality, suddenly displays signs of schizophrenia. She hears voices, commits sudden acts of violence, and switches moods without warning. McKeon's parents Valerie Harper and Stephen Macht are at a loss to contend with the sudden change of personality. With the help of psychological experts (and scene after scene of dry statistics), Harper and Macht are able to reclaim their daughter. Made for television, Strange Voices merely tiptoes through territory more successfully mapped out by such TV earlier films as Promise (86).
