At 30 years old, Annabel Hernandez is no stranger to the stage. Her passions include music, performing with a local theater troupe that integrates performers with disabilities with their typical peers, and making videos for TikTok. Interweaving day in the life footage with Annabel's own interviews of her friends and family on the subject of Down syndrome, this short documentary is at once an intimate portrait and a creative collaboration between Annabel and the filmmakers. The film culminates in a finale performance music video of a song co-written with Annabel, synthesizing the experience in a celebratory, and truly Annabel fashion.
FILM LENGTH: 20 MINUTES
