Don Baker (played by Bennet Frohock) has recently moved to Manhattan and made his overprotective mother (Leigh Wyatt Moore) agree not to visit for two months. Don has been blind since birth, and although he's a little lonely, he is enjoying his newfound freedom as he pursues his songwriting ambitions. Then he meets his kooky new neighbor Jill (Samantha Potrykus, a beautiful actress. The two quickly become close, and Mrs. Baker's unexpected arrival a month earlier than agreed upon results in her controlling instincts going into overdrive, as she fears Jill will break her son's heart when she plans to move in with her director (Eddy Herring).
