Down syndrome is a condition in which a child is born with an extra cop of their 21st chromosome. This causes physical and mental developmental delays and disabilities.

Down syndrome cannot be cured. But early programs can help improve some of the skills. People see improvement in speech, physical, occupational, and educational therapy.

With support and treatment, many people live happy and productive life. With practice and help, people with Down syndrome can do many things all people are able to do.

This documentary follows a dance company for one entire season. They are extremely hard-working and dedicated performers, and each dancer has Down syndrome. The documentary is a celebration of the joy of artistic expression and its effect on the family.
