Fly Away

Jeanne, a single mother of Mandy, a teenager with severe Autism, is at a crossroads. What used to organize her child no longer does. They’ve become isolated and entrapped. Yet moments of loving connection with her oddly endearing child, fill Jeanne’s heart. But when Jeanne meets Tom, a charming neighbor, sparks fly, causing Jeanne to reckon with her circumstances. What will sustain her child, and herself, into the future? Mandy, meanwhile, has her own ideas, forcing Jeanne to confront what every parent must eventually face; to let go and thrive, yet apart, or hold on tight and fall together. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW]
