The A Word
When Ayelet and Yaniv discover that their five year-old son Omri remembers the words to every song he has ever heard, they boast that he is a musical prodigy. But Yaniv’s sister-in-law, a physician, urges them to see a specialist. The day that Omri is diagnosed with autism marks the family’s challenging and occasionally humorous journey of denial and introspection. While the story of an autistic child is at the heart of this TV series, the drama is also about communication and why it is so difficult for all of us.
