Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This romance concerns the courtship between Brooks (Kiefer Sutherland), an erratic, brash rich kid who dresses in 1930s garb, and Anne (Vanessa Vaughan) a shy, deaf salesgirl. Brooks first notices Anne when he steals a mannequin from the sporting goods store where she works. The two later get together because Brooks decides to follow Anne home. Eventually, Brooks decides he has to learn sign language, and Anne provides the maladjusted young man with a relationship that is healthy. Along the way there are a few comical moments deriving from Brooks's manic behavior.
