Storyline

Eight families, each with an autistic child, permit a camera crew into their houses for 24 hours to immerse us in their lives. The film is loosely organized around themes: yesterday (when the infants developed as expected for a year or so), diagnosis, morning chores (breakfast, teeth brushing, getting dressed), stress and exhaustion, marital strain, siblings, finances, school, everyday dangers, being in public, and the future. Throughout the parents are candid, sunny, poignant, and aware as they talk while interacting with their children. Parents communicate the difficulties of their lives, the redefinition of their hopes, and the bone-weary depth of their love for their children. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A GREAT movie that everyone who doesn't know someone with autism should definitely see and those who do should share with others.
3 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I think this is an excellent view of what life is like for the family of a child with autism, the daily struggles and stress and frustration. It shows the isolation many of us feel in trying to be "normal"....I hope it comes out on DVD so I can purchase it and share it with many of my friends, family and church members. I hope that it will help others understand what we, as parents go through and hopefully have more compassion for us and the children who are dealing with the autism and their siblings. Day to day life can be so hard and so many of the "normal" people take that for granted. I hope this film reaches millions and millions of people, especially the educators of our children in the school systems across America.

It is a strong statement that will help many Americans see what it is like to raise a child with autism and how we, as parents, deserve compassion and so do these children.
