This touching and funny show is the story of Don Baker (played by Xander Burns) who has been blind since birth and his overprotective mother (Bobbie Fouts).
When Don moves into his own apartment in Manhattan to pursue his songwriting ambitions, he meets kooky neighbor, sexy actress Jill (Avalon Marut) setting off Mrs. Baker's controlling instincts! John Peters also joins the cast as Ralph Austin.
