A film of such hypnotic grace and penetrating insight that its effects will continue to be felt long after the last image has faded from the screen. It could only be created by someone with extreme passion for, and extensive knowledge of, its fascinating subjects. Young Matt flees New York City to work upstate as a counselor at a camp for autistic children. There he encounters a world he never knew existed, a world in which people are trapped in their own minds, unable to communicate their needs or feelings, living in perpetual prisons. The story unfolds so subtly and with such authenticity that, when it ends, a flood of emotion is unleashed that has been kept back by the fear of missing a single moment. (Trevor Groth)
