Presented in Collaboration with the ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York

A mother tracks down the first person ever diagnosed with autism to a rural Mississippi town to learn whether his life story holds promise for her own autistic son. Her journey exposes a startling record of cruelty and kindness alike—framed by forces like race, money, and privilege. She ultimately finds hope for a future with greater acceptance for those who are considered different.
