Synopsis

In an Emmy Award-winning performance (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Special), Marlo Thomas starred as the real-life Marie Balter, a Massachusetts woman who spent 20 years in a mental institution and confounded physicians who considered her incapable of leading a normal life. She ultimately went on to college and earned a Masters Degree from Harvard, later becoming a mental health administrator.

Initially called "The Marie Balter Story," it won a Christopher Award and was director Lee Grant's second made-for-television movie in that capacity, and cinematographer Sven Nykvist, longtime associate of Ingmar Bergman, here made his American television debut. Filming was done on location in Vancouver, British Columbia.
