In this provocative drama, an auto repairman compensates for his deafness with an ingenious computer which allows him to both speak and hear. He created the device himself and shows it to his speech therapist who enthusiastically suggests he try to get the machine manufactured. The mechanic goes to the computer salesman the therapist recommended. The self-serving salesman then exploits the hapless inventor.
