I would love to see this movie mainstream in ALL theaters across the world! Looking forward to being able to see it. I teared up watching the trailer. Thinking of my beloved sister and what she tackles everyday with her beautiful son.

What the future holds for our children?? Who will take care of them when the parents die?? As the numbers rising we must
also need to plan for the future and bring attention to the issues they face,loneliness,unemployment,exclusion. How can
we increase our children's safety and quality of life in the future. Thank you for creating a movie and for your focus to give a face to the mother and the child and allow
others visually understand what is happening in the family,
where autism present.


Congrats on the film. It looks fantastic from the trailer. I liked the line "... my daughter is not a problem she is a person!" Wishing you every success in finding widespread distribution. Looking forward to seeing it in the entirety.
