James Michael Chiang / Short Documentary / Canada / 2016 / 4 min / Colour / DCP / In English / Arabic subtitles
Rated: Parental guidance is advised. Some material may be inappropriate for young children.


The children and youth featured in this thought-provoking and heartwarming documentary all have one thing in common; their siblings were born with exceptionalities. In candid interviews, they share their experiences with prejudice, discrimination, perception, and everyday life. What shines through the most though is their endearing love for their siblings and the unique perspective on life that they have attained from sharing their lives with them.
