Synopsis

Luke is an independent young man with Down’s syndrome, forced to move into a care room following the death of his elderly mother. Intimidated and stubborn, Luke initially struggles to settle in and adapt to his new environment, despite the efforts of his outgoing carer and the other residents. Seeking solace, Luke wanders off one afternoon, where he encounters a troubled young man serving community service in the home’s gardens, and further afield, a young girl in desperate need of Luke’s help. This gentle, warm-hearted film contains lessons for all of us about facing up to the past (and future), the value of community and learning to accept help from others. A perceptive, funny drama.
