sensory filmTemple Grandin

The beautiful story of an autistic woman who overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become an expert in the field of animal husbandry. This movie paints a picture of a young woman's perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown.
