Synopsis

A documentary centering on eleven special-needs children and Susan Tom, their adoptive mother. The film focuses on the kids' and their mother's irreverent, honest way of confronting raw reality. From legless Xenia, who joyously plays a dead biker for Halloween, to Joe, a frustrated 15-year-old with cystic fibrosis who regularly makes angry threats, the siblings act out a whole range of coping mechanisms as Susan negotiates her way through providing them a stable home.
