Stand Clear of the Closing Doors is the story of Ricky (Jesus Sanchez-Velez), an autistic 13-year-old who runs away from home and discovers a new world on the NYC subway. His mother Mariana (Andrea Suarez Paz), an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, starts a panicked search of their neighborhood in Rockaway Beach with the help of a local shopkeeper. But as days pass with no sign of her son, and with Hurricane Sandy bearing down, the divisions the family has tried to ignore are brought to light. Stand Clear of the Closing Doors is a beautiful and moving New York City story, and one with an eye-opening view of life on the autism spectrum.
