Synopsis

Drama of an elective mute teenager (played by Donald Sutherland's lookalike son, Kiefer) and the psychologist who feels she can get through to him at the institution (Marsha Mason in the part). Filmed in and around Poughkeepsie, New York, it was adapted by Vicki Patik (Emmy Award winner for "Do You Remember Love" who, before this film premiere, had her name removed and the pseudonym of Pat E. Victor be substituted) from psychologist Torey Haden's book of her experiences treating similar cases of elective mutism--an emotionally induced condition in which the patient is capable of speaking but refuses. "Trapped in Silence," initially titled "Silent Rage," had been scheduled to be first broadcast in late January but was cancelled due to the Challenger Shuttle disaster.
