            Beyond my blindness

            Release date : 20/09/2018
            The surprising story of Maria Doyle, an Irish girl from a povertystricken
            family, who loses her eyesight at age 9 and decides then
            and there that she won’t let her handicap keep her from making
            all of her dreams – even the wildest ones – come true. Luminous,
            droll and touching, Maria shares the choice that changed her life.
            If she can do it, despite being blind, surely we can too?
            ~With her mother, who managed to withstand the worst of 1960s
            Ireland – the virtual prison-homes in which unwed mothers were
            placed – as a role model, Maria is hardly the type to give up in despair.
            At age 10, after running away from the school for the blind where
            she feels like she’s...
            ~With her mother, who managed to withstand the worst of 1960s
            Ireland – the virtual prison-homes in which unwed mothers were
            placed – as a role model, Maria is hardly the type to give up in despair.
            At age 10, after running away from the school for the blind where
            she feels like she’s suffocating (and making the over 20-mile journey
            home on her own), Maria managed to get a starring role in a musical,
            to represent her country in the Eurovision contest and to go on tour
            in the USA. Until a producer who was furious that she spurned his
            advances put an end to her musical career.
            Elected “one of the 10 most beautiful women in Ireland,” and since
            she wants children, and tends to go whole hog at whatever she
            does, Maria get 7 children in 15 years! How do you raise such a large
            family when you’re blind? With an appealing sense of humor, Maria
            describes her atypical, to say the least, life as a homemaker. And
            shows that anything is possible if you really want it.
            Rather than letting sickness overwhelm her, or crying over her fate,
            she decided to do whatever she had to do to make her dreams come
            true.
