  • Impossible Dream

    “If someone does not come along and provide us the opportunity, . . . we will never know what we are missing or capable of. And neither will they.”-Anna

    Anna’s quest to understand how the brain operates might have started out as an escape from the confines of her autistic existence, but when her housemate Daniel is in grave danger of losing all that he holds dear, she vows to do everything in her power to see to it that his remarkable artistic talent survives the amputation of his gangrenous hand. Anna doggedly pursues every lead and, in doing so, discovers that the very thing that might solve Daniel’s problem could reshape and substantially improve the health care of all those with disabilities.

    Through her singular focus on helping another, Anna sheds a light not only on the compassion and selflessness of those with autism but also on their insight and nonverbal intelligence. But will her voice make a difference?
