Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Fidel has had a difficult life, and it seems clear that it will only grow more difficult. He is a deaf-mute who is studying sign language at school with a man who is seriously troubled. He is also involved with a gang of robbers who are being pursued by a no-good cop. The cop, too, has troubles of his own. While Fidel's divorced signing instructor begins to fall in love with a gay transvestite, and the cop who is pursuing him discovers that his son is using marijuana, Fidel himself is falling in love with a deaf girl.
