Synopsis

Thirty-year-old Peter experiences life differently, through touch, smell and taste. Born without the ability to hear, see, or speak, Peter’s family must do this for him. Years later, he was also placed on the autism spectrum. Since she came into the world, his younger sister Christine has been by his side, guiding him and supporting their parents. Traveling through a myriad of emotions, she is now coming to terms with the fact that she will one day become his guardian.
