The Quiet Room

1996 PG

As her parents' marriage becomes more and more hostile, a 7-year-old girl (Chloe Ferguson) takes a vow of silence and retreats into her one sanctuary, her peaceful blue bedroom. In narration, the unnamed girl tells of her increasing despair over the constant arguments in her home between her selfish parents (Celine O'Leary and Paul Blackwell). Her only solace comes from her toys, which never argue, and her memories of better days.
