This is a moving, touching, funny film about a 10 year-old boy with a congenital facial deformity. Although the name of his disorder is not given in the film, it is most likely Treacher-Collins syndrome. It could be about Apert syndrome or any child with facial deformities.The story is told with great sensitivity; you'll laugh and tear up alternately. It that rare movie that will appeal to all ages.
