When, a nonverbal, highly intelligent, cerebral palsied 8 year old realizes that something might one day happened to his parents, he “orders” backup. Woody always plans ahead. His sister Ann, heeding the call for her magical birth, embarks on an extraordinary lifetime adventure to fulfill this order, while navigating the course of her own dreams and destiny. This true, and truly astonishing, story celebrates humanity and the way that we all connect along the way.
