On the trek of a lifetime, adult siblings, one with Downs Syndrome and one without, travel from Israel to India to hike through the Himalayas. As the hike intensifies, so do the family dynamics, forcing the siblings to confront unresolved feelings and the complexities of growing up as a pair of siblings with one having special needs. This heart-warming film is set against the richly colored scenery of India and will leave you with a deepened understanding of special needs adults and their families.
