Five mentally and physically disabled children entering a special school have to learn to get along with the others; a huge task, as they seem to be closed to the outside world. Gradually the class takes shape, to the amazement and delight of their parents.

Post screening discussion includes Patrick Lydon and the ‘Nimble Spaces Initiative Group’ from Kilkenny and Ian Barry, member of both Down Syndrome and Special Olympics, Wexford.
