When fifteen-year-old Tyson attends public school for the first time, his life is changed forever. While helping his father clean up after the football team, Tyson befriends champion marathon runner Aklilu. Never letting his autism hold him back, Tyson becomes determined to run his first marathon in hopes of winning his father's approval.
Tyson’s Run is a movie we can all relate to. Tyson’s longing to be accepted by his father leads him to push himself further than anyone might have thought possible. Ultimately, it is a heart-warming story of overcoming odds, changing perceptions, and of love winning.
What a wonderful feel good story of faith and love. I found myself crying, laughing, and cheering Tyson on. I was upset by his bullies but proud of his other classmates and friend Aklilu who quickly stand by his side and help him achieve his goal.
It's Tyson's Dad who has to have a change of heart and give him the attention, love for who he is, and encouragement along the way. Sometimes it takes a miracle to soften a hardened heart and realize what a treasure you have.
Tyson's Run is geared towards young teens on up to old people like me, who just love a great story.
