Summary
This unprecedented documentary captures the events that precipitated the murder of a Chicago teen. Filmed in the months leading up to his murder, the film shows what and who actually contributed to his death. Alex's tragedy tells a story of our time: the systemic failure of the US healthcare system to treat autism as a medical disease rather than a psychiatric oddity
