The first couple’s holiday of some young adults with Down syndrome.
The couples test the possibility of cohabitation, between intimacy and misunderstandings, enthusiasm for a possible future and thoughtful disillusionment, light-heartedness and a sense of responsibility. In the background there is always an umbilical cord to sever, the one with the family, which means putting one’s autonomy definitively at stake. Perhaps it is also the parents who have to accept a detachment that sooner or later will be inevitable.
