A documentary about the cube owners. Follow the story of two boys who have been world champions in building cubes at speed. The interesting thing is not only to see the competition, it is to see the vision that parents have about one of the boys who has autism, the total support they give him. Entertaining. Quality. Stimulating Talk about discipline, solidarity and friendship. Of short duration which makes it digestible and easy to see.
