The Grown-UpsMaite Alberdi
Anita, Rita, Ricardo and Andres have passed the age of 40, but they are still attending school. They go to a special school for children with Down syndrome. They are ready to stand on their own two feet but their surroundings do not know what to do with their personal desires. Director Maite Alberdi observed the 'young adults' in their surroundings with great empathy and compassion and interlaces the story of their growing frustration along with some comical, loving moments.
