A group of remarkable young people with Down syndrome embark on a demanding trek through the Indian Himalayas, accompanied by their brothers and sisters. Unresolved conflicts and the complexities of growing up with a Down syndrome child in the family come to surface, while a heart-warming and special closeness develops among the siblings as they deal with formidable physical and emotional challenges. The difficult trials and poignant relationships, set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, open new horizons and greatly deepen our understanding of people with disabilities and their families.
Winner of Best Documentary Film Award and Audience Choice Award at the 2017 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Screened at the World Down Syndrome Congress, National Down Syndrome Congress, Ruderman Inclusion Summit and hundreds of events and organizations around the world!
