MY HERO BROTHER
A group of remarkable young people with Down syndrome embark on a demanding trek through the India Himalayas, accompanied by their 'typical' brothers and sisters. Unresolved conflicts and the complexities of growing up with a child with Down syndrome 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 special needs people and their families.
