Much of the dialogue will be generated by neurotypical people clamoring to stop an illness, end an epidemic or find a cure, vernacular which is combative. But within the community of people living on the autism spectrum or working with those who demonstrate signs of autism, there’s a quieter chorus focused on the idea of acceptance and finding respectful ways to work with neurodiverse individuals.

The film, shot and edited with a mostly autistic crew, will become available on DVD on April 8 with On Demand options to follow in May.
