Abstract:

"Drama is triggered by the fatal plunge of an archeologist off a site in Mexico, leaving Ruth Matthews ... a widow. Returning to the U.S. with her son and daughter, Ruth soon has to deal with the fact that little Sally ... isn't speaking anymore. Instead, [Sally] emits almost deafening, rhythmic shouts when anything seems amiss to her and begins to do weird things, such as fearlessly walking in a rooftop rain gutter, catching a speeding baseball with her bare hand and building an extraordinary tower of cards in her room. Child psychiatrist Jake Beerlander ... wants to get his hands on this mysterious 6-year-old, whom he believes exhibits classic autistic symptoms, but Turner goes into heavy denial, arguing that Sally is just going through a phase. But, little by little, she sees that her daughter has entered a world of her own and undertake[s] a major effort to bring her out of it"--Variety review, February 15, 1993.
