Biopic of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become a Ph.D. and expert in the field of animal husbandry.

She developed an interest in cattle early in life while spending time at her Aunt and Uncle's ranch.

She did not speak until age four and had difficulty right through high school, mostly in dealing with people.

She is noted for creating her 'hug box', widely recognized today as a way of relieving stress in autistic children.

Also her humane design for the treatment of cattle in processing plants, which have been the subject of several books and won an award from PETA.
