The World according to Down: Being autonomous … a dream, a fight, a quest, a pride …
Day after day, through determination and courage, adults with Down’s syndrome acquire more confidence and overcome difficulties one after the other, tirelessly. Guided by their entourage from a very young age, they gradually develop their skills, adapt to their handicap, accept their differences and flourish.
The path to self-reliance is a long-term battle, a tough test for those who support them. Joys and disappointments punctuate the course. Some manage to manage their daily lives alone while others find their fulfillment in more supervised structures. Whatever the outcome of their efforts, they speak with pride.
“The world according to Down” presents moments of daily life of these people with remarkable human qualities. A report that opens our eyes to a more inclusive society.
There is the possibility, this window of dreams open to reality. – Victor Hugo
