Made for television, Journey From Darkness is based on the true story of medical student David Hartman. Marc Singer plays David, a brilliant scholar who under normal circumstances would be accepted into medical school without a hitch. But David has been blind since birth, a fact that has been closing doors on him all his life. As the boy receives rejection after rejection, his family and girl friend (Kay Lenz) try to be supportive, but David's bitterness threatens to overwhelm him. The happy ending of Journey From Darkness does not diminish the dramatic punch of the scenes detailing David Hartman's pain and frustration.
