It was nice to see Roma Downey in another role besides her angelic Monica. In "Monday After the Miracle",her role of Annie is seen struggling between being a good and loving wife, or a devoted teacher to the other main character, Helen. Helen was born blind,deaf and dumb, and with Annies help and care, grows to be a cultured and educated lady.Helen also deals with whether she can be in a real relationship with a man. And how the 2 lead stars then go on to help the similarly disabled.
Is this based on life? Yes, after Helen Keller, who founded the American Foundation for the Blind.
A beautiful movie...do give it a watch.
