DJ Savarese (“Deej”) finds comfort in words, as expressed by his poetry, which belies his high school senior standing. Yet he only “speaks” through a text-to- voice synthesizer. Adopted by a loving and supportive family, Deej navigates the college admissions process as a young adult on the autism spectrum, while confronting obstacles to inclusion.
Join us after the film for a Q&A with Adam Wolfond, from the ReelEd Film Adam’s Bar MItzvah.
