Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin stars as Jennifer Winter, the subject of a miraculous medical experiment. Deaf since birth, Jennifer is given an ear implant which will ostensibly allow her to hear voices for the first time. Evidently, the device is far from perfect; Jennifer is still unable to hear conversations, but she does pick up some very, very strange whispering sounds. Its title explained in the final moments of the episode, "The Message" was first broadcast on July 16, 1995.
