  • Amazing! Penny, Haley, and Kaleidoscope, thank you. Thank you all for sharing the story of an intelligent, insightful, and creative woman with ADHD. I have never seen my own experience so accurately portrayed with such skill, beauty and grace.

    My daughter was diagnosed at age 8, and now at age 19, I still don’t feel like I understand her ADHD. This film helped me see through her eyes in a way that I never have been able to before. Thank you.
