This DVD was played to a group of 3 highschool students who have made friends with an autistic student. This documentary opened their eyes to their friend's world. They took on a new perspective on how disabled people just want to live like everyone else, especially going to a ball. All teenagers should watch this- it makes you laugh and makes you cry! And of course they had a very special ball this year- all together.
