"That deaf dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball."

Young Tommy witnesses a terrible murder which leaves him traumatized. When Tommy is discovered to have amazing talents at the pinball arcade he becomes an instant celebrity. The Who’s Tommy contains great classic rock songs, including “Pinball Wizard,” “I’m Free” and “Acid Queen.” Working with Telecommunications to update the pinball game for a Wii generation promises a Tommy unlike any you have ever seen.
