This ongoing long term project tells about an italian family living with Autism Spectrum Disease(ASD).Emilia and Francesco, after having tried for a child for years, 
they resorted successfully to artificial insemination (ICSI) and had twins: Luisa and Riccardo. Only nine months after their birth, Emilia became spontaneously pregnant with their third child, Michele.
 At two and a half years, Riccardo and Luisa were diagnosed with a severe form of ASD. Unfortunately, just a year later, Michele was diagnosed with the same.
