Rescued from the dark
"The Miracle Worker" tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, the blind, deaf, and mute Helen Keller. Trapped in a secret, silent world, and unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such.

Only Annie realizes there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: "water."
