Description by OLDIES.com:
Oscar-nominee Amy Irving ("Crossing Delancy," "Carrie") stars as a deaf woman who falls in love with an aspiring rock singer, even though she is unable to hear him sing. Touching drama co-stars Michael Ontkean ("Slap Shot," "Postcards from the Edge," TV's "Twin Peaks") with Alex Rocco ("Get Shorty," "The Godfather") and Barry Miller ("Peggy Sue Got Married, "Love Affair"). Directed by Robert Markowitz (TV's "The Tuskegee Airmen," "Murder in the Heartland").
Amy Irving plays a deaf woman whose ambition is to become a professional dancer in this drama. Rosemarie Lemon is unhappy with the support she is getting from her family for her dreams. She meets a sensitive truck driver, Drew Rothman (Michael Ontkean), and they become lovers. Rothman's family is full of hatred for the world and ridicules his dream of becoming a singer. Their common ambitions and need for support make their relationship stronger, as each pursues a dream. Director Robert Markowitz uses rock & roll songs to fill in the parts in the movie where Lemon's deafness is emphasized. The soundtrack includes tunes by Burton Cummings, Tom Petty, and Willie Nelson.
