What does it mean to be on the spectrum of Autism? Every case is as unique as a snowflake.

"Dear Grandpa, it's Michael", is a family short film.

Michael's school project is to write a personal journey about life. Michael begins to write a letter to his grandpa in heaven, mentioning some of his accomplishments and the journey that has brought him to where he is today. Michael delves deep into his past remembering how Doctors said his Autism would prevent him from having any hope of a future. But Karen (Michael's mom) isn’t prepared to accept this diagnosis of her son. Karen and Michael's love is the story of the unbreakable connection between a mother and son, which helps Michael overcome and shatter all expectations.
