But when Suzanne's husband is let out on a technicality, she is forced to choose between the man she loves and the man she built a life with.

In the library scene where Alec Baldwin's character gives an impressive lecture, it is clearly heard that a crew member is saying the phrases then Alec Bladwin repeats them so each phrase is said twice. See more »
A film with an interesting plot, an educational one about the values of disabled people, those who struggle to live and forget their disability. A blind man is a human being who can see through his soul and his feelings. A blind man can write books, he/she can taste good food, good wine and even enjoy healthy air from uncontaminated environments. Those experiences are clear in the film. Above all, there is the fact that the blind can love and desire, live happy moments with their partner. The film exposes all these virtues of the blind person and the baseness of a rich person, unable to maintain a reciprocally affable relationship, and even capable of hitting someone who does not see. Intelligence on the side of the supposedly weak and the ruin on the side of the opulent.
