When fifteen-year-old Tyson attends public school for the first time, his life is changed forever. While helping his father clean up after the football team, Tyson befriends champion marathon runner Aklilu. Never letting his autism hold him back, Tyson becomes determined to run his first marathon in hopes of winning his father's approval.

TYSON'S RUN is a film I felt compelled to make," said Writer and Director Kim Bass. "We are using autism as a vehicle to explain that everyone is gifted, everyone is unique, and everyone has to be given an opportunity to flourish and be the best person that he or she can be." Bass is an Emmy®-nominated screenplay and teleplay writer best known for his work on "In Living Color," "Sister, Sister" and the Nickelodeon sitcom "Kenan & Kel."
