STORY DESCRIPTION:

Nicole is 18 und has Down’s Syndrome. She wants to have a boyfriend, would like to marry, get a baby and would like to be just normal. She grew up with Nick a boy from the neighbourhood and as children they have planned to marry each other one day. But now everything is different. Nick is 15 and wants to be cool, but he is an outsider. Being under permanent pressure to please everybody, it is Nicole who sees something special in him and who gives him what he is secretly yearning: unconditional love and affection. Nicoles direct and honest nature is contrary to her social environment where everyone hides their real feelings and lives their lies on a daily basis. The openness and tolerance of the families will be put to the test as Nicole expects a baby from Nick. This is where a race begins against sterilization, abortion and stucked views for the right to self-determination of a young woman with Down’s Syndrome.
