Anita is preceded by short film I Am
Anita, a young woman with Down syndrome, gets separated from her mother after a bomb explodes at their Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires. As she wanders the city searching for her mom – alone for the first time ever – she discovers an inner strength few could have expected.
In I Am, twelve people from varied backgrounds, age, and life experiences individually respond to key statements that demonstrate both the differences and similarities in human nature.
