“You are not a diagnosis. You are unique and you will show us your road to happiness.” Director Evelyne Faye directed these words to her young daughter Emma-Lou who has Down syndrome. She accompanies four people who are also living with Down syndrome and who are in different life stages. Johanna and Raphael love to dance, they want to get married and have children, just like any other couple. Magdalena loves to be on stage and is politically engaged, representing the rights of people with Down Syndrome. Andrea is also very active as a self-advocate, holding lectures about inclusion. All of them want to advocate for their rights, be seen as people with their own unique personalities, and be happy.
