From 1954 to 1979, follow the lives of the Eberhardt family. They are, of course, not perfect.
Randall, the third child of Lainey and David, is special; he is autistic. Randall's behavior and its effects on the family are deep, long-lasting, and sometimes devastating. The obvious and not-so-obvious effects of autism on the family are explored by the fourth born daughter, Nina. Through her, you will experience the joy and pain of the Eberhardt family.
Slow, deep, and important.
