Video: Short film on autism

Micha Hilliard


"I'll Be Fine" is a short documentary about a family, their home, and the trials of living with a nineteen-year-old son who has autism. In the past, Tim's behavior was deeply upsetting. Rarely did a day pass without confrontation. His parents, Richard and Rebecca, awaited the school bus with tense shoulders and baited breath. Tim is doing better now. Years of experience have helped him to bring his behavior under control. His progress, however, is still tenuous to his parents. They remember his earlier behavior and fear that he could regress. There is a delicate peace in their home, but Tim's autism constantly threatens to undermine it all. Love alone holds their family together as they face everyday exhaustion and an unknown future.
