A touching and thought provoking documentary about a charismatic disabled young woman who goes from a small town high school to national television as an American Homecoming Queen. Meanwhile, she is being educated to wash windows in a used bookstore. During these uncertain times when President Elect Trump mocked a disabled reporter and Betsy Devos, the President’s choice for Secretary of Education, is against public education for the autistic, this film is an important look at what it means to grow up disabled in America. (In post-production)
