Helen Keller said that blindness separates a person from objects and deafness separates that person from people. Without support, encouragement and education the world of a deafblind person can be an isolated one of darkness and silence. In the documentary “The World At Your Fingertips”, we visit India where more than half a million people are deafblind. But with the help of Sense International India and the Helen Keller Institute in Mumbai, many deafblind children and young adults are reaching out to the world around them, widening their horizons and fulfilling their potential.
