Plot Summary
Six-year-old Mandy Garland (Mandy Miller) was born deaf and has been mute all her life. Postwar English society sees her as disabled, but her mother, Christine (Phyllis Calvert), believes she can learn to talk if enrolled in a school for the deaf. To do so, she has to battle her husband (Terence Morgan), his meddling mother (Marjorie Fielding) and his stern father (Godfrey Tearle), and eventually she has to leave with Mandy. Christine's sacrifice is doubled when she's accused of adultery.
