Mum. One of the first words we say is the easiest but means so much.

For these six men, who, as a result of intellectual disabilities, live with their mums for most or all of their lives, the relationship with their mother is the most important human connection they have.

With heart, humour and honesty, these sons tell stories of their mothers as they recount their lives from childhood to adulthood, complete with challenges and triumphs.

These are love stories made all the more potent because of disabilities the men live with and their humble take on discrimination they’ve faced.
