Don’t Wake Me: The Ballad Of Nihal Armstrong is an intensely dramatic and moving true story of a mother’s tireless battles and inspiring triumphs in her struggle for her disabled son’s rights.
It is a story of severe disability, of battles won against all odds, of struggles, challenges and the frustrations of being misunderstood.
But above all, it is a story of a mother-son relationship unlike any other. A story of a mother’s everlasting love for a very special child, who, through it all, shows intelligence, innocence, charm and a wicked sense of humour.
