Sam’s birth was unexpected. His diagnosis of Down Syndrome was also unexpected. We see Sam’s life story through the eyes of his parents, Tom and Carol, as they face the challenge of Tom’s uncertain future. From the outside looking in, these seem like insurmountable obstacles for this close family. But through Sam’s love of dance and his parents’ humour and honesty, we begin to see who Sam really is, and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
