A mother tracks down the first person ever diagnosed with autism, now an elderly man in rural Mississippi, to learn if his life story holds promise for her own autistic son. Her journey exposes a startling record of cruelty and kindness alike, framed by forces like race, money and privilege -- but ends in hope that acceptance is gaining for those who are "different."  

Live Conversation on Thursday, May 13 at 7 pm with the filmmakers of In a Different Key included with film.


Scored by Wynton Marsalis.
