Helen is lost and often throws tantrums but Annie reaches out to her through language. She teaches Helen to hand-spell many words. Helen follows pursuit like a memorising game. Next annie tries to teach her discipline. But having brought up as a lone child in her house, Helen throws tantrums and out of force of habit she throws the pitch of water at Annie. Annie forces Helen to refill the jar, when Helen realises that each and every item has a name.
