Despite autism becoming more and more prevalent in our everyday life, there is still a stigma that dominates people's perception of autism, particularly here in the UAE. Increasing awareness about autism is not only necessary, but also a way to lessen this stigma.

The primary goal of the documentary As One is to raise awareness. The As One endeavor began with a dream of creating a change, and the belief that to refine society's perceptions, a pivotal change needed to occur in people’s feelings towards autism. Image Nation took on this task using all the arts of theatre and cinema in order to produce a documentary film to enlighten and educate people about autism.
