After her daughter Yoshiko’s Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis, and her husband’s overseas military deployment, Saki Omura is finding life harder and harder to manage. Too ashamed to burden others and too proud to ask for help, this Japanese American mother faces the now-daunting task of giving her daughter the best life possible. Much more than a story of coping, “My Daughter Yoshiko” is also about the power of trading shame for empathy, and is based on real events.
