Born Different

James, a teenager with autism, likes to mind his own business. Social interactions aren’t easy for him, and he’s happiest in his own world. But when he notices a group of boys bullying a younger kid, Ari, in the playground, he is faced with a decision - stand back and watch, or do something about it.

Still from 'Born Different' - a child with light brown short hair, round dark-rimmed glasses and rosy lips looking up towards the sky, on a background of a wooden play structure.Still from 'Born Different' - a child with light brown short hair, round dark-rimmed glasses and rosy lips looking up towards the sky, on a background of a wooden play structure.
