Storyline

In Columbus, Ohio, a group of teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum prepare for an iconic American rite of passage -- a Spring Formal. They spend 12 weeks practicing their social skills in preparation for the dance at a local nightclub. Working with their psychologist, they take the challenges expressed in their respective therapy groups from one level to the next: picking dates, dresses, and, ultimately, a King and Queen of the Prom.

Wonderful
4 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was channel surfing and stumbled across this presentation. The movie was captivating and had a profound effect on me. The typical population does not realize how challenging it is for differently able persons to socialize. Thank you for this wonderful documentary. My daughter has to be encouraged to socialize with family members and friends whenever they come for a visit. She prefers television, computers and alone time more than being in a group setting. It helps to know that we are not alone and that other families have love ones with similar traits. It's great to know that there are resources available. I hope to include this documentary in our college library collection.
