Powerful adaptation of Elmer Harris' play, in which Wyman's deaf mute girl lives with her father and resentful aunt on a bleak Nova Scotia farm. After a local boy rapes the girl, a series of events lead to her being put on trial for murder. Happily, the staging isn't too theatrical, nor the proceedings too melodramatic.
