Blue Sky July: A Mother's Story of Hope and Healing
Set between the summers of 1998 and 2005, Blue Sky July follows the story of Nia Wyn, a mother who battled against impossible odds to heal her son Joe, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy soon after he was born. Told by doctors that he would never walk, talk, see, or even recognize her, Wyn devoted her every waking moment to exploring alternative treatments.
Through an intimate portrayal of her day-to-day interactions with her son and partner-as well as her own internal struggles, perceptions, and celebrations-Wyn shares her own uplifting story of resilience in the face of tragedy.
