Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet, this interesting documentary on autism and it's affect on families, tells the story of Margret, a mother who has done everything in her power to help her 11 year-old son, Keli. Keli is severely autistic - his mother doesn't even know if he understands Icelandic, let alone other languages. Even if Margret holds no unrealistic expectations on behalf of her son, she has a quenchless thirst for knowledge about the mysterious and complex condition that autism undeniably is. Margret travels to the United States, where she meets scientists in the field of autism and autism therapies, and the parents of autistic children who share her wish to break down the wall between the children and the surrounding world. After an encounter with Soma Mukhopadhyay, an Indian mother who has developed a unique prompting method for training autistic children and teenagers, Margret learns that, perhaps, it is possible to break down the wall of autism and get to know the individual behind it.
