Only the Best for Our Son
The 49-year-old Kees is autistic and still lives with his parents who take care of him. Their love has given Kees the ability to blossom as a relatively independent grown-up. But what will happen to Kees when his parents, now 80 and 83 years old, can no longer take care of him? Filmmaker Monique Nolte follows the attempts of Kees' parents to create the perfect future for their autistic son.
