How far would you travel to heal someone you love?
The film follows a Texan family of three – husband Rupert, wife Kristen, and their four-year old autistic son, Rowan. Rowan is prone to distressing fits and the family found that conventional therapies little or no effect. Then they discovered that Rowan has a profound kinship with animals—particularly horses—and the family set off on a journey to shamanic Mongolia which changes their lives forever.
The film also features experts within the field, including Dr. Temple Grandin – subject of the recent HBO biopic starring Claire Danes. In telling one family’s extraordinary story, the film gives voice to the thousands who display amazing courage and creativity everyday in the battle against this mysterious and heartbreaking epidemic. THE HORSE BOY is part travel adventure, part insight into shamanic healing and part intimate look at the autistic mind.
