An intensely personal yet epic spiritual quest, The Horse Boy follows one Texas couple and their autistic son as they trek on horseback through the breathtaking steppes of Mongolia in an attempt to find shamanic healing for him. The couple in the film includes Dr. Kristin Neff, who is better known here for her work on self-compassion. For anyone who loves a person - especially a child - with autism, this is an incredibly hopeful film. And it's a moving film for the rest of us.
