Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Director Ali Codina documents the first year of marriage between her cousin Monica and David, both of whom must go to extraordinary lengths just to live a normal life due to the fact that they're both afflicted with Down syndrome. Much like any loving couple, Monica and David dream of owning a home, having children, and growing old together. Over the course of their first year of marriage, the devoted newlyweds receive unconditional support from their families and loved ones as they struggle to find work, and rely on one another to get through hard times.
