Para Normal

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015




We consider many things "normal" and take them for granted - like being able to use the computer, making friends or growing vegetables in the backyard. For some it might not be as easy.

This film introduces three adults with developmental disabilities, telling a story of their learning experience as they share their lives in a group home. Despite their challenges they continue to learn new things every day. All they live is a "normal" life.
