While the unflagging support of a patient, loving family has been vital, Owen also found that Disney cartoons could unlock an understanding of both the real world and his own emotions.

 

 

 

This impressive, heartwarming documentary celebrates both Disney and Owen’s own animated visions, yet does not shy away from their limitations and the challenges he still faces.
