Based on true events this film seeks to tell a story about a subject that has too often been dismissed as an embarrassment not worthy of discussion. Bobby is a high-functioning autistic individual whose struggles are compounded by societal pressures. His parents struggle with coming to terms with their child's situation given the stigma attached to such matters in the Indian American community. It is hoped that the film is viewed as conveying that love, patience and understanding can make a tremendous difference in creating conditions conducive to enable success for the specially-abled.
