Annabel Hernandez, a young woman with Down syndrome, shares her love of performing and her unique perspective on life. This short film is an experiment in how the documentary genre can better, and more authentically, represent individuals who have intellectual disabilities as well as the diversity and vibrancy of a community that is often overlooked.

Film run time: 20 minutes
