My Hero Brother follows a group of sibling pairs on their journey up and through the Himalayan Mountains in India – except in each sibling pair, one has Down’s syndrome. It is incredibly moving to watch the siblings’ relationships grow and strengthen as they both reach heights they never have before, figuratively and literally.
