STUDIO ONE: THE DEAF HEART (TV)

Summary

Ruth Cornelius had been the only hearing member of her family, her parents and brother, Joe, being deaf. A team of doctors at a teaching hospital's psychiatric clinic believe her deafness has no physical cause. Dr. Huston and Dr. Franks, after learning more about Ruth and her family, conduct a dramatic demonstration to convince her that she can actually hear.
