UNLOCKED – A documentary, currently being filmed featuring Leslie and Bobby Weed’s daughter Lanier. This feature film follows the lives of 5, teens and young adults who are connecting to the world in a way that nobody around them thought was possible. They’ve lived their entire lives in a kind of exile, unable to translate thoughts into speech. UNLOCKED is a film about walking out of this prison into the bright sunlight. Sitting at a keyboard, their thoughts come pouring out, a lifetime of previously unheard utterances forming a deluge. The results are staggering. As Lanier, one of the major characters in the film, put it in her first typed message, “Thank you for releasing my voice… I am in here. I have always been in here.”
