SYNOPSIS

ÁINE is a story about raising a daughter in a world that has already defined her potential. This documentary short film follows the life of a young girl with Down Syndrome from her mother's pre-natal findings through to her present day challenges. As the family navigates unexpected turns, this little girl will sass you with her tenacity for life and her love of music. 

Such a powerful film.
Áine is a hero from a family of heroes!

Christine Farley

 

Potential energy is the energy possessed within a body by virtue of its position relative to others, stresses within itself, electric charge and other factors. I believe that anything is possible for my child. She is not typical. I am not blind to the fact that she has limitations. I also believe that no one gets to say what she can or cannot be based on her disability.
