A young boy grieving the loss of his grandmother struggles with his new live-in tutor in this period-family drama from director Sally Champlin. Trapped in an endless cycle of depression following the death of his grandmother, Brian (Tim Redwine)'s has retreated into a silent world of sadness and ennui. When Brian's parents hire an amiable young widow named Mary (Angela Jones) as a live-in tutor in one final bid to keep their son out of the military academy, the troubled young boy lashes out and refuses to accept his new teacher. Determined to break through Bryan's monolithic emotional barriers, Mary reaches out and directs all of her efforts to saving her young charge from falling into a deep depression from which he may never fully recover.
