Told in the charmingly unpredictable voice of an autistic teen with a rare brittle bone disease, The Unbreakable Boy is a funny and inspiring true story of a young couple stumbling through parenthood, who find constant inspiration from the joy and optimism of their spectacularly unique son. In the spirit of Wonder and Peanut Butter Falcon, with a dash of JoJo Rabbit.
