CELESTE IS HAVING A HARD TIME AT SCHOOL; SHE CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE ANY FRIENDS IN HER CLASS, SO SHE DECIDES SHE MUST BE FROM OUTER SPACE.
Celeste is a young girl with autism. This makes it hard for her to connect or fit in with the people around her. But she knows there must be a whole world of people who are just like her. She decides they live in the one place she dreams of going – up in the stars. She starts building a spaceship to bring her to her home planet where she belongs. That’s when she meets Martin, a new boy at school. Martin wants to help build the rocket, which is something that Celeste would not usually share with others. In this ‘new boy’ comes a new way for Celeste to look at human interaction and an unexpected friendship. This is when the real adventure begins.
‘Celestial Being’ explores the world of a young girl with a big imagination, fears, dreams and her struggle making social connections. As we see the world through her eyes, and the tremendous colour and joy that her inner world presents, we realize that seeing things differently can be a wonderful gift!
