Synopsis: “The Miracle Worker” is the inspiring true story of young Helen Keller, a native of Tuscumbia, Alabama, who is rendered blind and deaf after a bout of scarlet fever as an infant. Her inability to communicate has left her frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from teacher Annie Sullivan, partially blind herself, to tutor their daughter. Through months of persistence, love, and sheer stubbornness, Annie breaks through Helen's walls of silence and darkness and teaches her to communicate. Helen later becomes a pioneer in the field of sign language, bringing it to the forefront as a means of communication for millions.
