Summary, etc.: John Singer and Spiros Antonapoulous are deaf-mutes who have lived together for several years. Antonapoulous becomes mentally ill, misbehaves, and despite attempts at intervention from Singer, is eventually put into an insane asylum away from town. Now alone, Singer moves into a new room in the home of Mick Kelly, a tomboyish girl who loves music and dreams of buying a piano.
