“Through this film, we follow the lives of people who are different, and their families. Their stories drive the documentary’s narrative and capture our hearts as we witness the demands upon families with a truly different child. The film shines a bright light not just on these different families, but portrays a more universal vision and offers a map for all of us seeking to discover the wonder of others.”
