Inspired by true events, a story about a young mother of a boy with autism whose long-standing determination together with her fight against the red tape and human insensitiveness led to crucial changes in the Polish education system. A story that hits your heart directly, full of emotions, optimism and tender sense of humour talking about the female strength, joy of life, a different worldview and the hidden potential that dwells inside each of us.
