Only Barry and Suzi Kaufman could guide Robertito through the dark and mysterious Labyrinth that separated him from the world!
Somewhere behind Robertito's wide-eyed, vacant stare lay a gentle little boy, totally alone and out of reach. He was, after all, a "hopeless" case -- "uneducable" and "autistic." Even the medical world had given up on Robertito. Until, at last, his parents found the Kaufmans: the loving couple who had rescued their own "incurable" child. Volunteers joined Robertito's parents in their journey. Before their eyes, a miracle of love and learning took place as Barry and Suzi Kaufman taught everyone how to love themselves and to nurture a "little boy back to life."
