Deej is DJ Savarese, a non-talking autistic man who was abandoned by his birth parents and remained uneducated until his adoptive parents helped him pursue an education. This documentary deals with Deej's transition to college life and the difficulties and growth that Deej pursues at Oberlin. He is a wordsmith who uses a machine to talk and he and his community know something you don't.
