I exist too

The film is a story about destinies of several people with Down syndrome and their families, in chronological order from birth to adulthood. It is based on narratives of those persons and of persons from their innermost environment. They live in Sremska Mitrovica, but this is the story of all such people outside the major centers in Serbia who after the death of their parents do not have the possibility of collective housing by monitoring, which is the most humane solution for them..
Making a film was financed by the Municipal Association for helping people with Down syndrome from city Sremska Mitrovica in order to highlight this need in the wider community.
