FILM SYNOPSIS

A short documentary film that tells a true tale of courage, faith and extreme hope.
The film traces the journey of a mother of an Autistic child. It talks of the extraordinary relationship of pleasures and pain they share and aspires to tell a true tale of courage, faith and extreme hope. While the film is dedicated to the indomitable spirit of women in all their avatars- for their love and affection that sustains many such children across the world, it also hopes to serve as a source of inspiration to other parents battling Autism.
