Richard Everts
Produced By:
The Tommy Foundation
Plot Outline:
10,000 Miles. 20 Families. 5 Languages. 1 Dream. If there ever was a story about the heart of America, it's found in families affected by autism. Like so many people say about America, they say these kids have their best days behind them. You can hear those in authority saying that their situation is hopeless and to redefine what is "normal." Many parents see a system that is corrupt or inept and lose hope while their support systems crumble and they're forced to go it alone. Yet, some decide to rise above the fray. What drives them? Who are these people? How are they changing their communities? Recorded in the original languages of it's citizens, the film weaves a broad net across the spectrum of American life in all its faiths, disparities, colors, lifestyles, and cultures. It's a story about the best days still lying ahead for our nation, the families, and the People who give America it's heart."
