A look at three different perspectives from within the family of someone with a disability.

Graham has Sotos syndrome; similar to autism. He was diagnosed at the age of 3 and he has just celebrated his 29th birthday.

The film explores the social, cultural and personal aspects of the relationships people share with those who have a disability. It does so from the perspectives of three individuals. The mother, drafted into the role of full time carer for 29 years. The younger sister, coming to terms with her brother's disability and learning to communicate with him. And her boyfriend, the outsider who has no prior experience with special needs.
