Screenings

Synopsis

The children and youth featured in this thought-provoking and heartwarming documentary all have one thing in common; their siblings were born with exceptionalities. In candid interviews, they share their experiences with prejudice, discrimination, perception, and everyday life. What shines through the most though is their endearing love for their siblings and the unique perspective on life that they have attained from sharing their lives with them.
