Summary
Tells the story of Gannet [Hosa-Betonte], a 22-year-old man with severe disabilities, as he prepares to move out of his mother's home and into a San Francisco apartment with three musicians and artists as primary caregivers. Gannet (or 'G,' as his friends call him) was born with Mowat-Wilson Syndrome, a genetic condition which results in a myriad of physical and developmental disabilities with symptoms resembling autism ... The film provides a model of how someone with serious disabilities can be integrated into the community and live a truly full life. Along the way, it challenges conventional notions about independence, empathy, and disability, and provides a glimpse into a kind of life seldom seen
