Not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say. That is the core message of a book written by Naoki Higashida when he was just 13. Based on that work, this Sundance award-winning film follows a Japanese boy on a journey through an epic landscape. As he discovers what his autism means and why he acts the way he does—the reason he jumps—Higashida’s insights are sensually fused with portraits of five other non-speaking autistic young people across the world.
