When David Wilson’s young wife falls victim to cancer, he becomes a single working dad with the sole responsibility of caring for his sixth grade son with autism. Patrick, who prefers to be called “Po,” is a gifted but challenged child who was very close to his mother and unable to communicate his own sense of loss. As father and son struggle to deal with life after mom, they each begin to withdraw into their own worlds. David withdraws into the high pressure job he’s close to losing and Po drifts away from the school where he’s bullied, into his magical fantasy world, the Land of Color, where he’s just a typical carefree boy with a rich cast of other worldly companions. The growing divide between father and son and the challenges of single parenthood of a special-needs child threaten to separate David and Po permanently. Based on a true story, the bonds of love between a grieving father and son are tested in the most real way in “Po.”
