A mother has spent 12 years raising her daughter with Asperger’s syndrome, learning to accept her frank ways of expressing herself and observing her daughter’s progress toward creativity and independence. The film chronicles the relationship between mother and daughter, who at times closely embrace and other times are pulled apart, barely saved from parting.
