Thirty-year-old Peter experiences life differently, through touch, smell and taste. Born without the ability to hear, see or speak, Peter’s family must do this for him. Years later, he was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Since she came into the world, his younger sister, Christine, has been by his side, guiding him and supporting their parents. Traveling through a myriad of emotions, she is now coming to terms with the fact that she will one day become his guardian. What does it mean to dedicate your life to someone else?
