A quest for answers, A Parallel Universe: A Journey Through Autism investigates the mysteries of the Autism Spectrum and includes interviews with experts and researchers, explores educational techniques, and highlights the personal experiences of families living with Autism. Sparked by the filmmaker's personal experience, the path to making this film was led by her own challenges, lessons learned, and many questions as a teacher working with Autistic children. When what began as 'just an idea' for a documentary evolved into a film project, Jennifer Davis-Lewis quickly found that everyone she contacted with questions and interview requests had a compelling story to tell. These stories shaped A Parallel Universe. The heart of this film is the families and their struggles for acceptance. They have had to learn - some still learning - how to live with their child's Autism. Though each family has different beliefs of what caused their child's Autism, all want to make the world a better place not just for their child, but for all children.
