This 30-minute documentary takes an enlightening look at young people with a wide spectrum of learning differences, offering a compelling portrait of the ways in which these children are able to compensate by using their strengths to overcome their challenges.Many say they are no different from other kids, and can accomplish the same things just differently. We hear from their parents as well as their teachers, all of whom are committed to helping the children discover the ways they learn best.

Kids interview segments are intercut with scenes of the children engaged in the activities that reflect their talents: one is a gifted muralist, another shines as a poet. Another boy is so articulate no one would ever suspect that he has dyslexia and has trouble spelling words and recognizing them on sight. A group of students attending Denver Academy, a school for students with learning differences, find that being surrounded by others with similar challenges helps them to accept themselves, as well as succeed academically and in the arts. The documentary ends on an uplifting note, reassuring children of different abilities that they are no less capable of performing great feats in their lives.
