The Story of Neo is an animation like no other. It follows the adventures of an innocent and lovable character who struggles to feel he really matters when his parents are distracted by difficulties in their own relationship. Based on new understandings of neurobiology, the film also illustrates how the quality of Neo’s parents’ relationship shapes the development of his brain and his own relationships as an adult.

The Neo character has become a mascot brand for the education arm of Relationships Australia.
