Author Eli Gottlieb allowed cameras to come along for one of his regular trips to visit his brother, Josh, who lives on an assisted living campus. Josh has been a resident of various state and private run programs for individuals on the autism spectrum for nearly 50 years. When their mother passed away a few years ago, Eli became Josh's sole guardian. This film, which combines the verite footage of the visit along with interviews with both Eli and Josh, and is supplemented by old 8mm footage filmed of the brothers in their youth, provides an unflinching portrait of a family both torn apart and held together by autism.

For a shorter version and broader perspective on the issues of adults on the spectrum, please see this film featuring Eli and Josh here:
