Tuscumbia, Alabama, 1880. After a mysterious illness leaves nineteen month-old Helen Keller deaf and blind, she is left to grow up in a world of silence and darkness. Fighting to be free from this dense fog, her increasingly wild behaviour leaves her family desperate and helpless. With no help or answers from doctors about how to reach her, their last hope is a doctor in Boston, who sends young Annie Sullivan, herself visually impaired and haunted by her past, to teach Helen.
From the start, the relationship is rocky and sometimes violent. How will Annie reach into Helen’s world to bring her to the surface? Will Annie be freed from the darkness of her memories? Is communication possible?
Based on Helen Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life, The Miracle Worker captures the tumultuous and revelatory first month of Helen and Annie’s life-long relationship. Miracles do happen.
