Young Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute since infancy, is in danger of being sent to an institution. Her inability to communicate has left her frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institute, which sends them a “half-blind Yankee schoolgirl” named Annie Sullivan. – (from www.imdb.com)
(A few years after their meeting, Helen and Annie took up residence in nearby Wrentham.)
