Overview

Downs With Love”

They told me that I should have told them I have Downs.

Why? What difference does that make?”

“Downs With Love” tells the story of Beth, a young girl who has Down’s Syndrome. She lives a very independent life, has her routines and lives simply but happily. She is helped by a new support worker, Tracy and they soon strike up a friendship. On a Friday night, she goes to the pub to watch Mark, a local singer. Beth loves Mark but the problem is – Mark loves Tracy who loves both of them. Complex and challenging issues arise for all.
