MONICA & DAVID is a love story about two adults with Down syndrome. The film explores their marriage and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David want what other adults have—an independent life. While they are capable beyond expectations, their parents, aware of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go. Full of humor, romance and everyday family drama, the film uses intimate fly-on-the wall footage to reveal the complexity of their story.
