    Aged 3, Owen Suskind developed autism and withdrew into silence and distant thoughts. His loving parents struggled tirelessly to reach him - to interact in some meaningful way - but hope was fading. Enter Walt Disney, and a revelation that would change all of their lives. Young Owen was using his beloved Disney animated films to make sense of the world around him, and - as we see in this endearing coming-of-age documentary - this was the breakthrough he needed to reconnect with his family and forge ahead into young adulthood.
