Additional Details

Explores the marriage of two adults with Down Syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David are blissfully in love and want what other adults have, an independent life. Full of humor, romance, and everyday family drama, intimate fly-on-the wall footage is used to reveal the complexity of their story. While Monica and David are capable beyond expectations, their parents, aware of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go.

DVD, widescreen.

Touching Film

This documentary was an interesting look into this particular family. Monica and David are in love. Monica's mom has the financial ability to buy a lovely condo for Monica and David to live in. What struck me was how Monica's mom didn't want her to pursue work, training or other social outlets. Monica was high functioning enough she could have been more independent if her Mom let her.
