Lemonade is about one family's innovative home schooling solution for an adult with Autism in the United Arab Emirates, after they had been told that he's too old to attend his special needs school. Faced with overwhelming odds and almost nothing in terms of support, this family takes on the challenge and makes a happy life for this young man. When life hands you lemons, there's only one thing you can do...Make Lemonade!
This film was made to highlight the severe lack of attention being given to adults with Autism world wide. Some countries are better than others, but overall, the adults are a lost generation, and all of them will be adults with Autism someday, so I hope that Lemonade encourages other families to take a proactive approach.
