Q&A

4 minutes

‘Have you ever lied to me?’ What do you wish you’d asked your mother as a child?

Affected by Asperger’s syndrome and struggling with the social aspects of school, 12-year-old Joshua Littman knows his brain functions a bit outside the norm for children his age. Animated with humour and heart by the Rauch Brothers, in Q&A this precocious boy and his mother engage in a refreshingly unguarded conversation about their relationship, and the struggles they’ve each faced trying to find happiness with acutely sensitive minds.
