But Natalie has autism, and when she’s denied admittance to the school, the stark setting of Alcatraz begins to unravel the tenuous coping mechanisms Moose’s family has used for dealing with her disorder.  All Moose wants to do is protect Natalie, live up to his parents’ expectations, and stay out of trouble.
