Have you met a down-syndrome? How do you felt, take a putty on him? Scared? Not care? Meet Daniel (Pablo Pineda) the first down-syndrome who graduated from university. He's normal one actually, except his face shape which so visible there something different in him. He could react when people talked to him, understood took an order, even he could talk in front of audience. He's become an inspiration. After graduated from University, Daniel got his first job. He was so happy, so did his parents looked very proud on him. In workplace Daniel met Laura (Lola Duenas), a blonde sexy girl who Daniel attracted with. Daniel tried anything to make himself closer with Laura, which is worked because his attention accepted. He liked Laura very much because she treated Daniel as if he's a normal person. The interesting dialog between Laura to Daniel when she asked : "why are you different with the other down-syndromes?" Daniel said : "It because of my mum. She keep talking to me a lot, asking me much things. So I answer her." His brother Santi (Antonio Naharro) doubted it. He said no woman with a normal chromosomes is going to love Daniel. In spite of his cruel comment, Santi love Daniel dearly. His brother has gymnastic gymnastic training for down-syndrome.
But in fact, Laura didn't consider his relation with Daniel is an exclusive one. She assumed Daniel is her friend. It was extremely caused terrible feeling for Daniel. Then how their relation actually? Except from Daniel love story, there were a love story between Santi's students, two down-syndrome who falling in love that couldn't be separated for each other. And the touching moment was when Daniel rejected to come inside a discotheque because they said he's still a kid. Daniel was mad and shout : "i am not a kid! i am 34 years old. You should let me in!"
This film make us realize that a down-syndrome does have feeling like normal people. Not because of they're consider 'not normal' doesn't mean society can treat differently. They just want live as normal as possible. Interesting fact is Pablo Pineda actually the first down- syndrome who graduate from university! The fact he also can act, is surprising right? When you just got tired with the other love story, "Me Too" will enlightened you with something more than just a love story, where you can learn in imperfection make perfection. Where respect and love should line up together.
