An endearing and tragic love story that follows the life of a popular American novelist, Daphne Fields (Lindsay Wagner), struggling to come to terms with bringing up her deaf son alone after the heartbreak of losing her husband and daughter in a house-fire. As the only reminder of the family she once had, she devotes her life to her son's upbringing with outstanding courage, forever putting his happiness before her own.
She finds strength in Dr. Matt Dane (Barry Bostwick), who is dedicated to the care and attention of deaf children. He offers support and comfort as her writing career takes off and she is forced to make many personal sacrifices. But Daphne is scared. Scared that she will never find the happiness she once had and scared that she will never be able to love again.
