Sponsored by The Down Syndrome Guild 

This Israeli documentary follows a group of remarkable young people with Down Syndrome as they embark on a demanding trek through the Himalayas, accompanied by their 'normal' brothers and sisters. Unresolved conflicts and the complexities of growing up with a down syndrome child in the family come to the surface, while a heart-warming and special closeness develops among the siblings as they deal with formidable physical and emotional challenges.

Through the eye of the camera, we catch a glimpse into the internal world of those with Down syndrome, and are led on our own journey of discovery and admiration, as their inspiring natural qualities begin to emerge; wholesomeness, direct and honest emotional expression, and the capacity to feel and communicate unconditional love. The difficult trials and poignant relationships, set against the richly colorful backdrop of India, open new horizons and greatly deepen our understanding of special needs people and their families.
