Described by Eileen Barrett
Written by Emil Sher, and based on Canadian journalist Ian Brown’s memoir of life with his son, The Boy in the Moon tells a deeply moving story about a family raising a child with a severe disability. Ian and Johanna Schneller’s son, Walker, was born with a rare genetic disorder, Cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome. It made him unable to talk, eat properly, or take care of himself. The family must face complex issues most of us do our very best to avoid.
The Boy in the Moon is a story of pain and beauty that asks vital questions about family, frailty, and the values we ascribe to human lives—our own, and those around us.
