Chile/The Netherlands/France, 2016, 80 min.
For almost their whole life a group of friends 40 year olds have been classmates. Now they are sick and tired of being students and no longer want to continue complying with school obligations. They always believe that when their parents died, they would be able to do everything they weren’t allowed to before, like living on their own, driving, hanging out, having sex, being parents, getting married, and having a real job. But things are not changing for them, they have Down Syndrome and they have to deal with the frustration of living as if they were still ten years old, but they are almost fifty. They are grown-ups and they want to be treated as grown-ups.
