Petra, Matthew, Katherine and Daninah offer an inside perspective about what it feels like to be born a little bit unusual. This animated documentary combines self-portraits with first-person narratives to challenge widely-held stereotypes about Down Syndrome.

Filmmaker Shira Avni pursues a deeper understanding of esteem and disability. While Down Syndrome if often discussed in terms of disability, Tying Your Own Shoes is an artful, four-way essay about ability.

DVD also includes the film John and Michael.
