Eighteen years ago Sarah Boston gave birth to a son, Will. He had Down's syndrome and died while still a baby. Medical tests now widely available give women the option to terminate Down's pregnancies, so society could virtually screen out
Down's syndrome. In the year that Will would have come of age, Sarah celebrates his birthday with an appreciation of the contribution that Down's people make to our humanity. This is an intensely personal film in which Sarah still feels
Will's absence from her life, and questions the set of values we have when we make choices about genetic screening. Director Nikki Stockley Editor John Blake
