Filmed over three months, this documentary charts a series of sessions exploring the use of video with drama therapy, with a group of disabled adults at Montague House, a Day Centre in Brighton. As the sessions unfold, small and moving transformations occur amongst those taking part; Edward who is usually silent, sees himself on video and spontaneously sings for the first time.
