NotesA teacher of deaf children spents her evenings in singles bars. Eventually she is murdered. The teacher had polio as a child which caused coliosis requiring an operation to straighten her spine, and she's in plaster for a year. The children in her class are really deaf children and Louie Fant, a hearing man of deaf parents, portrays a sign language instructor. From Judith Rossner's novel which was based on a true story.
