The Schneider's aren't a neurotypical family. A year after the death of their mother, Samantha "Sam" Schneider (Jessica Hoechstetter), a teenage girl with ADHD, and her twin autistic sister Jaclyn "Jack" Schneider (Kayleigh Jayne) must learn the rules if they wish to survive High School.

Created by neurodivergent filmmaker Justin Janoson, What's the Rule is an independent crowdfunded streaming series that features a majority disabled cast and crew.
