When her grandmother and guardian dies, MS sufferer Ruth (Samantha Mathis) is swiftly deposited in a private healthcare facility by relatives with power of attorney. The fact that it's nicknamed "Freak City" does little to assuage the chip on Ruth's shoulder as she breaks bread with the physically and mentally challenged individuals who surround her. Eventually, however, she befriends a blind boy, Lenny (Jonathan Silverman), and develops a crush on car crash victim Cal (Peter Sarsgaard). As she eschews bitterness and self-pity for maturity, Ruth bonds with her retarded roommate Cassie (Marlee Matlin), who experiences prejudice from her peers for not sticking with her...
