Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
It is 1962, and Elisa Esposito&#x2015;mute her whole life, orphaned as a child&#x2015;is struggling with her humdrum existence as a janitor working the graveyard shift at Baltimore&#x2019;s Occam Aerospace Research Center. Were it not for Zelda, a protective coworker, and Giles, her loving neighbor, she doesn&#x2019;t know how she&#x2019;d make it through the day.<p>Then, one fateful night, she sees something she was never meant to see, the Center&#x2019;s most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man, captured in the Amazon, to be studied for Cold War advancements. The creature is terrifying but also magnificent, capable of language and of understanding emotions&#x2026;and Elisa can&#x2019;t keep away. Using sign language, the two learn to communicate. Soon, affection turns into love, and the creature becomes Elisa&#x2019;s sole reason to live.<p>But outside forces are pressing in. Richard Strickland, the obsessed soldier who tracked the asset through the Amazon, wants nothing more than to dissect it before the Russians get a chance to steal it. Elisa has no choice but to risk everything to save her beloved. With the help of Zelda and Giles, Elisa hatches a plan to break out the creature. But Strickland is on to them. And the Russians are, indeed, coming.
