SynopsisFour families, four children born with the Down-Syndrome, four concepts how to meet such a challenge. Joerg, Carina, Anica und Finnian were born in 1969, 1985, 1994 and 2002. Cornelia Thau accompanied the families for more than 4 years. In FOUR LIVES the parents frankly talk about their wishes, hopes and successes, but also about the disappointments, doubts and difficult decisions they have to make.
Joerg, Carina, Anica und Finnian present themselves as selfassured personages with own interests, wishes and longings. They demonstrate social competence, artistic talent as well as ambition, persistency, humor and an impressive charm.
A film for all people who are interested in concepts of life under those special conditions.
