About this show

In The Silence Of The Heart, set on Labor Day weekend in 2008, tells of a fictional African-American family that has adopted a young Chinese boy ten years earlier. The boy's father had served in the same firehouse as the father of the black family, but was killed on duty. Soon after the tragic incident, the father of the black family left home and had not been seen again until his sudden appearance on this holiday weekend. The ensuing revelation and conflict throw the tightly knit family into turmoil. The production's multi-ethnic cast, headed by African-Americans, includes actors from Japan, China and Vietnam. In English/Spanish with Chinese subtitles.
