A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism

“A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism” (a.k.a The Sunshine Boy) tells the story of Margret, a mother who has done everything in her power to help her son. Keli is eleven years old and is severely autistic – his mother doesn‘t even know if he understands Icelandic, let alone other languages. Even if Margret holds no unrealistic expectations on behalf of Keli, she has the quenchless thirst for knowledge about the mysterious and complex condition that autism undeniably is. Along they way, Margret meets other families and hears their unique stories about how they too have been touched by autism. [Synopsis courtesy of Official Site]
