Daniel - a recent university graduate with Down's Syndrome - falls in love on his first day at work in the Department of Social Services. Laura is an outsider who spends her nights in the city's crowded clubs and singles' bars, escaping her problems in the arms of total strangers. Yet despite their apparent incompatibility, the two strike up a moving, bittersweet friendship that touches them both and eventually sets them on the road to happiness.Written by

A very simple story with a heart of gold. It's a bit rough around the edge, but this suits the story perfectly.
I think the main female character, whom I consider interesting enough to explore deeper into her family (e.g. what happened in the past?). Anyway, the story is concentrating on Daniel and his friend's struggle to be normal, so this is only a minor point.
Please I urge you go and see it. I promise you the warmth will stay with you and change the way you see others. It melts my heart I hope it will do the same to you. Never forget we are all humans and have feelings. See things from the other perspective.
