In 2006, HBO debuted the 2007 Emmy®-winning Autism: The Musical, a poignant,
heartwarming film that followed five children on the autism spectrum as they wrote and
performed their own musical. We revisit the stars of this musical 12 years later in
Autism: The Sequel as the original subjects, now in their early 20s, navigate what
independence means to them as they manage challenges and triumphs as adults.
Weaving together present-day interviews with footage of the subjects and their families
shot 12 years ago, the uplifting short documentary Autism: The Sequel debuts Tuesday,
April 28 at 9pm on HBO.
