This documentary follows the lives of two children living with disability; one is an Australian and the other lives in a remote village in Thailand. Their stories reveal the unique and similar faced challenges by each family in two very different settings. Joshua: Joshua is nine. He has many disabilities, which affect his everyday life. He has a degenerating illness in his lungs and will eventually require a lung transplant to survive. Toni is Joshs Mum and full time carer. In 2009 she was awarded with an Australian Citizen of the year award for her advocacy of disability care and awareness. “I have to fight for Joshy to get the medical attention and assistance he needs the facilities are here. Overseas there are no facilities.” Joshs Mum, Toni Mitchell. --Suphot: Suphot lives in a remote jungle region of Thailand. In a village with little education about disability, his positive attitude and sparkling personality is a great witness to the community. At 17, he is enjoying his first year at high school. Although being disabled creates some challenges, he has a great support network around him. This documentary explores the unique daily challenges faced by each family in two very different parts of the world. Share in the laughter, tears, joy and pain as we take a fly on the wall look into the lives of these incredible people.--Kanopy.
