January 2019, VAULT Festival

Thomas has autism. David doesn’t. As they struggle through the ups and downs of youth and into manhood, Thomas explores the experience of living with this still often misunderstood condition. Companionship, self-acceptance, and kindness in times of pain are at the heart of this tender story of two cousins fighting to become the men they think they should be.
