The young Helen Keller, blind and deaf since infancy as a result of scarlet fever, becomes prone to violent outbursts that grow more frequent and intense, resulting in her parents, Captain Arthur Keller (Victor Jory) and Kate Keller (Inga Swenson), reaching out to a school for the blind for help. That help arrives in the form of Anne Sullivan (Anne Bancroft), a teacher whose personal struggles have provided her with the tools to assist Helen. And so begins a battle of wills between the obstinate Helen and the equally stubborn Anne (a breakfast scene between the two becomes a virtual wrestling match).
