This film is about love, family and living with someone who has an intellectual disability. It's about a Down Syndrome boy and his family and how their lives together can be frustrating and beautiful simultaneously. Not only does it portray the life of Max, the Down Syndrome boy, but also his sister's, his mother's and their whole dynamic as a family, providing different perspectives to this otherwise untouched and untold experience.
As a sister having a brother with Down Syndrome, this is a film that is real and raw. It is a film that encapsulates my experience as an elder sister, as a learning teen and a struggling role model. This was a way to tell my story to express the emotions, the details and the times that cannot be conveyed in words.
