About this item
A powerful film directed by Emmy Award(R) winner Janet Grillo ("Autism: The Musical"), "Fly Away" narrates the story of Jeanne (Beth Broderick, "Bonfire of the Vanities", "Sabrina the Teenage Witch") and her autistic teenage daughter, Mandy (Ashley Rickards, "One Tree Hill"). Jeanne has cared for Mandy since the day she was born, growing closer every day to a child who is charmingly offbeat one moment and nearly impossible to manage the next. In the dog park, Jeanne encounters Tom (Greg Germann, "Ally McBeal", "Friends with Money"), an easygoing and accepting neighbor who sparks a romantic interest, but she finds juggling Mandy's care and her own career leaves little room for a new man. As the pressures of work and her child's needs increase, she must decide whether or not to enroll Mandy in a therapeutic residential facility. Over the course of a few weeks, Jeanne is confronted with the most difficult decision a parent can make: to let go, allowing her child to grow, but also grow apart; or to hold on tight and fall together.
