說故事的時間開始．．．／So, the story begins...
With the moms' efforts, three boys gradually started to build friendship. When they are together, their interactions are always beyond our imagination. They are fun yet annoying, amusing yet driving the moms crazy. But, most of the time, watching them you just feel tears in your eyes. Building relationship is never easy for children with autism. They would certainly have quarrels or conflicts, but the tough moms never gave up.
Mox (Ming-yun Lee), 10-year-old boy of high functioning autism, always pays all his attention on things he likes and indulges in his own state of mind. He is impulsive, irritable; he would hit people even his mother or sister when he feels unhappy or angry, yet you know it never is hatred. Mox is unable to solve the negative emotions, or, he just doesn't know how to interact and communicate in the normal way.
Mox enjoys painting and dancing. He is a primary school student in the gifted class on dance. Mox has great talents and potentialities on painting and dancing.
Yuchien (Yuchien Ma), 9-year-old boy with Asperger Syndrome, is innately emotional. He cannot deal with frustration and control for crying when things go wrong. But occasionally when he is in a good mood, he is really caring, gentle, and sweet. He enjoys painting, acting, and singing. His favorite includes war history, knowledge of the military and weaponry. He's fascinated with imaging space/time travel, and ''Star Wars.''
Being over-sensitive, it's not easy for Yuchien to extricate himself from extreme moods. He cannot help crying, pouring out his vexation, and giving vent to his emotions.
Cheng (Chi-cheng Chien), 9-year-old with Asperger Syndrome behavior, lacks a sense of proper social interaction. His eyes never really fix on certain thing, and you don't know if he is looking or not. He seems not interested in sharing experiences with people, instead, he entertains himself with his toys or games.
Cheng would study hard on things he likes and do researches as a little professor. He fixes his attention on Star Wars films and cartoons. Everyday when he gets up, he has to watch an episode of Star Wars, and then goes to school. He draws pictures on themes from Star Wars with Mox and Yuchien. Together they develop their imagination and elaborate their own version of (star wars) stories.
Leland Lee, an autistic youth of 20-year-old with cheerful personality. He is a big boy; his smile and happy look are touching. Leland was born and raised in Los Angeles, he enjoys horse riding, swimming, painting, playing the guitar and singing. His repertoire in painting is unique and successful, not to mention that he has held exhibitions in the United States and Taiwan. Leland cannot communicate by words, however, he finds other ways to express emotions and feelings deep in his heart. When he visited Musée du Louvre, he sang a psalm while looking at a painting of Jesus Christ. He said that Miss Mona Lisa (Portrait of Lisa Gherardini by Leonardo da Vinci) is beautiful because she is saying a prayer. In Musée d'Orsay, he said hi to Vicent van Gogh's ''Self Portrait,'' as if the great artist is still alive. After his Paris trip, he had an art exhibition held in LA, and spent some time with his brother Jason, a psychology major at University of Washington. Jason is really proud of his younger brother Leland and will be writing his graduation thesis on autism.
The film shows the real life of these kids with autism spectrum disorders : their feelings, languages, and behavioral patterns. The audience may have better understanding about how autistic kids could be so different and treasurable. In order to show the kids' inner worlds that is hard to express by words, we collected elements from art works of the kids and produced 2D computer graphic animations as the opening and ending sequences.
