Storyboard Text

  • Helen! HELEN!!!! Do you hear me?!
  • She can't see my hand! She didn't hear my scream! *sob*
  • D, O, L,L. Doll. It has a name, Helen. It has a name.
  • She can't seriously be trying to discipline her..?
  • You have learned table manners, folded your napkin and you now must eat with a spoon!
  • Helen Keller is born. It is 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. After a terrible battle of acute congestion of the stomach and brain, Helen was left blind, deaf and mute. She had trouble communicating and was often aggresive in her older years, causing her parents to call Annie Sullivan to teach her...
  • "You promised me, Annie."
  • I'm sorry, Jimmie...
  • The story fast-forwards to Helen, now 6 1/2. She has become very animalistic and yearnes to speak. The servant's children, Percy and Martha, often played with the child. The children found Helen reaching up to their mouths, desperate to learn to speak and be like them. When Annie arrived, it was different. She taught Helen words by moving her hands in the different letters that made up a word. Sometimes Helen and Annie had disputes...
  • Miss Sullivan's right, I'm right, Kate's right and you're wrong!
  • I love Helen. Forever and... Ever.
  • One morning, Helen walks around the table and takes food from everyone's plates. Annie refuses to let her take her share and asks the Kellers to leave the house while she locks the doors after them. She forces Helen to learn to eat with a spoon, sit at the table and most importantly, fold her napkin. It does not go over very well with Helen, and Annie asks if she can use the garden house for two weeks for Helen to learn discipline...
  • Wah, wah... Wah, wah.
  • On the last night, Annie begs for more time. She still hadn't taught Helen that things have a name and she still needed a teacher herself. Jimmie, her brother was killed in an asylum and Annie blames herself...
  • One her first night back, Helen misbehaves by dropping her napkin on the floor and eating with her hands. When Annie tried to stop her, Helen splashed the pitcher of water in her face, making Annie angry. She picked Helen up underneath her arm and forced her outside to refill the pitcher of wate while James, the Kellers' son, defends them and stands up to his father...
  • Here, Annie spells water to Helen and something in Helen's brain clicks. She rembers words! "Wah, wah." She says, "Wah, wah." This only marks the beggining of Helen and Annie's journey together...
  • Helen.. O-oh my Helen!
