The Miracle Worker is tells the incredible story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan, the extraordinary teacher who finds a way for Helen to learn. Centering on the pivotal portion of Keller's childhood when Sullivan enters her life. As Sullivan struggles to reach Helen, she must also contend with the obstacles in her student's family, namely a domineering patriarch resistant to change, a young mother who loves too much, and a son whose resentment of Helen bubbles close to the surface. The Miracle Worker lays the foundation for the ultimately miraculous and inspiring story that has moved audiences for years.
