Description

Based on Columbia University professor and psychologist Andrew Solomon’s award-winning, best-selling book, this gripping documentary examines the lives of four families with children who have, in one way or another, diverged from their expectations. Whether these differences are physical, mental, or otherwise, the families challenge traditional concepts of “normalcy” and embody the growth that comes with embracing diversity. Stretching far beyond these case studies, the film is a sweeping, metaphysical rumination on the nature of family and how we confront and conquer the pre-conceptions we place on our children.
