"Jan Maka was a child like any other, until his family's lives were turned upside down when it was discovered he had autism. What is it like to live with a child affected by this neurological disorder? Through the voice of Jan's devoted mother and the comments of specialists, Anna Barczewska's touching short film introduces us to the demanding reality of autism, a condition characterized by a reduced ability to communicate with the outside world. Going beyond one family's story, A Child Unlike Any Other depicts the daily struggle of parents of autistic children and their efforts to obtain therapy. A poignant cry from the heart."
