The story behind the film
Mirroring the tragic and supportive duality of the pandemic, our film tells the resilient story of Lenin, a New Yorker with Down Syndrome who lost his last remaining family member to COVID-19. Lenin’s story is ultimately one that shows what it means to find love in humanity, in empathy, and in finding a new home in the hearts of those that support us.
