Film Description:

This is the story of a real-life case, presented to be shared with the autism community and the world at large. It is the story of a young non-verbal autistic boy who, in an amazing way, taught himself freediving. But the focus goes beyond showing the case as something extraordinary, and presents the emotions experienced by the parents, as well as teaching about the fundamental axes of life, compassion and love, and the greatness of our potential as human beings. It is a moving, inspirational, heartwarming and uplifting story.
