Abstract:

This documentary tells how the popular science show QED transformed the life of one young autistic boy. The astonishing talents of Stephen Wiltshire, one of three idiots savants featured in The Foolish Wise Ones, brought him fame and fortune. Since the age of six, Stephen could draw buildings in perspective. By the age of 12, he was acclaimed as probably the best child artist in Britain. Stephen's brilliant drawings have been published around the world, and he has become far more outgoing in his interpersonal relationships. The program follows him to Venice and Leningrad in an attempt to discover why he has changed so dramatically.
