Summary
Imagine learning about life mostly from animated characters dancing across a screen. This is a real-life story of Owen as told by his dad, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind. An autistic boy who couldn't speak for years, Owen memorized dozens of Disney movies, turning them into a language to express love, loss, kinship and brotherhood. His mom, dad and brother communicated with Owen in Disney dialogue and song until they all emerged together, revealing how, in darkness, we all literally need stories to survive
