You could try os.walk (search for "walk" here: and then loop the results 
to find the file (sure there are some out of the box methods for this 
but right now I don't know any).
One thing I'm not sure if you want to search for a word within the file 
or if the submitted word matches the name of the file. My suggestion 
should work for the last option.

Good luck.
