Night Visions is an anthology series similar to The Twilight Zone - some tales are supernatural, others are just commentaries on twisted human nature. Each hour episode is made up of two half-hour episodes aired back-to-back.
Sandra, deaf from birth, attempts to restore her hearing by agreeing to submit to a new type of surgery whose goal it is to repair damaged hearing. The surgery seemingly fails and Sandra walks away feeling the same as before. However, at her job in a justice court, she realizes she's not the same as always- she has the ability to hear people's thoughts.
