"He was smaller than a milk carton," Peter's sister as co-director Christine recalls her mother's earliest stories about the premature baby's birth. Peter, now 30 years old, is autistic, can neither see nor hear. Every day he feels and explores in his own way. “Peter will find his place,” his ill mother declares convincingly. Even though there are no suitable provisions in Denmark for her deafblind son, she and her family care for him devotedly day in day out. A heartrending portrait of a courageous family in the struggle for a dignified life for their son: truly memorable. Simon Hauck
