Synopsis

For almost their entire lives a group of forty-something classmates have grown up together with increasing frustration. Anita, Rita, Ricardo and Andrés feel that the school they attend for people with Down Syndrome is confining; they long for challenges, greater independence, and personal space.

Our take

Ana and Andrés are in love. They both attend catering school, and both have Down Syndrome. This touching film from the director of The Mole Agent examines the lifelong tensions these hopeless romantics face: a tug-of-war between the desire for independence and the implications of their diagnosis.
