Paula is a 1952 film directed by Rudolph Maté.[1]


Distraught after her second miscarriage and learning definitively she could never have children, Paula Rogers, while driving at night, accidentally injures a child. Confused and also expected to attend a function that honors her husband, Paula doesn't follow the child to the hospital as she should. She attempts to tell her husband about the incident but has trouble finding the right time.

Later, overcome with remorse, she looks to get close to this child and becomes a helper at the hospital. The child is an orphan with limited health care available. The doctor recognizes Paula's need to be useful and asks if she would become his speech therapist and guardian. She finds meaning and purpose in her life as she engages the little boy in intensive therapy necessary to recover his ability to speak.[2]
