    This film is amazing and really made me appreciate life.

    Heartwarming. Makes you think about how we look at others vs their own perspective. Why are we expecting them to change themselves ??

    What a beautiful, powerful video. Not one of them wished to change their disability; it makes me wonder if they even had one. They just wanted to change things about themselves that anybody would want to change: to get married, be better looking, or get their hair back. It really puts into perspective the things we take for granted, and we should appreciate each blessing that has been given to us. I am going to share this with as many people I can. Thank you.

    We need to accept all different kinds of people around us because everyone has basic needs, care and communication. We all have ideas how to make our life better or like to be the way you are.
    All we need to do is too put more attention to these good people and make them feel better because they will make you feel better too.

    Beautiful and profound. We can all learn a lot about people with a disability and about ourselves from this documentary. We should all be this insightful about ourselves and also this content with who we are. Thank you for this.

    This simple film has a profound impact. Our organization has shared it with many groups, including students from Loyola University Maryland every year. The class we work with on a campus awareness event even takes the film’s one question and poses it to the audience to answer for themselves before they see film. They leave with a new perspective on people with developmental disabilities — and themselves. Lastly, I’ve now seen this film myself many, many times and it never fails to give me a smile and sometimes still, a tear.
