Nicholas Bourne has always looked out for his younger brother Alex who has Down’s Syndrome. Alex is now 24 and Nick realises that the future holds challenges and perhaps some big sacrifices on his part. Does he have the compassion and understanding to become Alex’s full time designated carer? Seeking answers from the experiences of others, the two brothers set off to meet other siblings with Down’s Syndrome in a journey that extends from New York to Mumbai and Hanoi. A moving, sometimes uncomfortable documentary that takes an honest look at the brothers' relationship.

This screening includes a Q&A with Director/Producer Luke White, Cinematographer/Producer Ed White, and Participants Alex & Nicholas Bourne. 
With thanks to Bertha DocHouse and Carol Nahra for hosting this Q&A session.
