Storyboard Text

  • Thank god.
  • She'll live
  • Why, writing does no harm, Aurthr, only a little bitty letter. To see if he can help her.
  • He can't
  • My Helen -Folded her napkin!
  • ''She'll live", says the doctor. "Thank God,'' says Kate, Helen's mother. Keller and the doctor leave the room. "Call it acute congestion, indeed, I don't see whats so cute about congestion, just because it's yours. Men, men and their battle scars, we women will have to-." Kate stops. She is puzzled and starts to move her finger in from of Helen's eyes. Helen does not respond to her hand moving or her snapping. Kate yells for Keller and they can't seem to help Helen.
  • No! No pity, I wont have it.
  • Later on, Aunt Ev finds out about a oculist in Baltimore she wants to write to, Dr. Chisholm. Keller refuses to wright to the man because he has simply lost hope in helping Helen. Before they can finish their conversation, Helen knocks over the cradle with baby Mildred inside. This brings everyone to a panic. "Helen!" Keller exclaims. "Helen, Helen, you're not to do such things, how can I make you understand"Kate cries out. Keller later agrees to write to the oculist and they send Annie Sullivan. Annie is a partially blind, young women. Annie gets to their home and meets Helen, she does not make a good first impression though. Helen locks Annie in her room witch leads to Keller having to carry her down from a ladder.
  • No. It will be, when I give into that
  • Miss Annie Its a very special day
  • Dinner comes and Annie is surprised from what Helen is doing. Helen is sticking her hand in others plates of food. Annie will not let Helen off the hook this time. Now, Annie and Helen have their battles. Annie, trying to teach Helen, manners and how to have a meal properly. On the other hand Helen is trying her hardest to refuse to anything that Annie tells her to do. In the end, the dinning room is a complete mess, but Helen has learned how to fold her napkin, how to eat from her own plate, and how to eat with her spoon. Helen running out goes to her mother and gives her a hug. Kate, after hearing the news, burst into tears of joy.
  • Yes!
  • Wah. Wah.
  • Kate, Keller, and Annie have agreed to give Annie 2 weeks to keep, take care of, and teach Helen. The first day is rough. Helen wont even let Annie touch her. Good luck having to take care of her for 2 weeks. Anyway, with the help of Percy, and some clever thinking, Helen finally accepted the fact that she was stuck with Annie, no matter what. After the two weeks were over, Helen had made AMAZING progress. She was neat, clean, respectful, used her utensils, and had learned a lot of new letters and meanings. The 2 weeks are up and they head back to the house.
  • Once dinner comes around, everyone comes to the table to eat. Helen thinks that now she is back home that she could get away with whatever. Helen starts to test everything to find her limits. Now to Annie, it seems that Helen is getting back to her old habits and she wont let that stand. Now, Helen and Annie going back and forth once again. Just like there little battle before. Except now we have a room full of people. Annie, trying to put Helen's napkin on her lap. And Helen, refusing to listen no matter what. Helen spills a pitcher and Annie gets so upset with her, she then takes it outside.
  • Once they are outside, Annie goes with Helen to the water pump. Annie starts to pump water. Annie says, "Water. W,a,t,e,r. Water. It has a -name-". Helen says with a great effort "Wah. Wah". And again ,"Wah. Wah." Helen then starts groping for more tings. Ground. Pump. Step. Mother. Papa. She then turns and gropes the air for Annie. She spells to Helen's hand, "Teacher." Helen spells back, "Teacher." "I, love, Helen." Annie spells to Helen's hand. "Forever, and, -ever-." THE END
