The Miracle Worker

Directed by
Laura W. Andruski

The tremendous heart-warming story of an incredible friendship and bond between a teacher, Annie Sullivan, and her deaf and blind student, Helen Keller. Set in Tuscumbia, Alabama, Helen contracts an illness at 18 months old that leaves her blind and deaf. Her parents, who pity and spoil their afflicted daughter, are desperate to have order, hire a young Annie Sullivan to try and reach the mind of Helen. After many battles and disciplined weeks together, Annie breaks through to Helen, giving her a connection to language and all the world has to offer.
