James is a new speech teacher at a New England school for the deaf that has unconventional teaching methods. He meets the enigmatic Sarah, a former brilliant former pupil, but someone afraid to face the 'real world', prefers to stay within the safe environment of the school. James falls for her but she eludes him and refuses to communicate with him unless they use sign language - much to James' frustration.
