At the turn of the 19th century, a French couple have a daughter, Marie, who was born deaf and blind. Desperate to find a connection to her, they send the fourteen-year-old to live at a school run by Catholic nuns. There, the idealistic Sister Marguerite sees in Marie a unique potential, and vows to bring her out of the darkness into which she was born. Based on true events, Marie's Story recounts the courageous journey of a young nun and the lives she would change forever. Writer Sean Axmaker of Seattle Weekly says, Marie's Story is lovely and sweet, sad and uplifting.... it satisfies nicely with vivid performances, beautiful imagery, and compassionate direction."
