As Emilio, a three year old boy with Down syndrome, is ready to start school, his family finds itself cornered in the United States’ most segregated education system – New York City public schools. Fighting for their son’s right to an inclusive education – where Emilio and other children with disabilities would be taught alongside their classmates without disabilities – film director Olivier and his wife Hilda investigate the personal stories of disabled students and their parents in the US. With children with disabilities worldwide less likely to attend school, these experiences expose just a handful of the widespread injustices currently taking place in the educational system and beyond for kids with disabilities.
