MONICA & DAVID is the love story of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David are blissfully in love and want what other adults have an independent life. Full of humor, romance and everyday family drama, the film uses intimate fly-on-the wall footage to reveal the complexity of their story. While Monica and David are capable beyond expectations, their parents, afraid of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go.
Directed and produced by Monica s cousin, first-time filmmaker Alexandra Codina, MONICA & DAVID is a crowd-pleasing romance that swerves around the mind and goes straight for the heartstrings.
