Desperate to help their older daughter, Tilly, Alexandra and Josh Hammond partner with Scott Bean, an unconventional child behavior expert, in founding a community for families with autistic children. The principal storyteller is younger daughter Iris, performed by Abigail Revasch, whose rhythms and pitch sound authentically preteen. Iris's curiosity and kindness charm listeners, who sympathize with her confusion over Scott's strict authority and her mixed feelings about her sister's condition. Cassandra Campbell's silky voice matches Alex's internal musings as she tries to understand how her family has fallen under Scott's control. Both performances are tinged with unease and a slowly developing tension. Jorjeana Marie narrates from Tilly's viewpoint, using exaggerated energy to dramatize the teen's loosened hold on reality.
