Enjoyable peek into the life of a unique individual
17 March 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary came along at a good time for me. My wife and I just had a daughter with Down Syndrome and though we spent a lot of money on various professional texts, it was a movie like this that really shows us what it is like and quiets our fears. We see an individual, Rene with Down Syndrome but doing things through the course of a year in his life that are the same as others his own age. What greater comfort can there be for new parents???

Duane has put together a humorous and entertaining look at one year of many for Rene. It will keep you enthralled as you wonder what is going to happen next. Your pulse will race with Duane's as Rene takes the wheel of a car for the first time. You will cheer with Rene as he celebrates the Spurs championship. You will feel sad as he goes through a breakup. You will wonder, will Rene ever return to Albertson's? We are in for a ride but it's nice to see someone there before you.
