A true story of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The remedy she craved came in the summer of her junior year of high school. It wasn’t a pill or an operation; it didn’t come from a psychologist or psychiatrist, from a course or a self help group. No, it came from a stockyard. “Animals”, she says, “saved me.”

Running time: Approximately 2 hours.

Admission: $1
