Trapped in a secret, silent world, and unable to communicate, Helen Keller is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human, and treated by her family as such. Annie Sullivan, a young teacher with a disability of her own, understands that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. The volatile relationship of the lonely teacher and her young charge is explored with intense physical and emotional dynamism. Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word.
