Imagine you have a sibling with Downs Syndrome. Now suppose you join a trek in the Himalayas with 10 other sets of similarly paired siblings. Think of the emotional and physical challenges hiking far from home in India. Is this a recipe for disaster, rife with frustration and unrealistic expectations? Or is the trip a creative opportunity for bonding, unity, communication and new beginnings? Luckily for filmmaker Yonatan Nir, this group of remarkable young people face all of these high and low moments with bravery and deep compassion.  This astounding film about the very nature of love and family deepens our understanding of the special needs community.

 "Moves hearts and minds with its story of adventure, perseverance and sibling love." Jessica Steinberg, Times of Israel

"Humanistic and attentive to its heroes, I highly recommend". Yael Shuv, TIME OUT MAGAZINE
