The Reason I Jump

Show trailer
Based on the Japanese best-seller written by a 13-year-old boy, who found a language and opened the world's eyes to life with autism.

In Naoki Higashida's international bestseller 'The Reason I Jump', a boy travels through a dreamlike landscape, and every chapter shows us a new side of his special inner world. Naoki himself had lived his young life as an autistic boy without speech, when he, at age 13 and with simple technology, wrote his book and opened the world's eyes to a life with autism. With five young people with autism as the protagonists and accompanied by Naoki's words, the film adaptation of his book opens a window to a world that is overwhelming, full of sensory impressions, joy, loneliness and enormous closeness. Five unique lives, filled with different challenges.
