  • Synopsis

    Based on the bestselling book by Naoki Higashida, this is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity. The film blends Higashida’s revelatory descriptions of his autism with intimate portraits of non-speaking autistic people from around the world into a sensually rich tapestry that leads us to Naoki’s core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.
