Winner of multiple awards and acclaimed by audiences around the world, Praying with Lior asks whether someone with Down syndrome can be a "spiritual genius." Many believe Lior is close to God--at least that's what his family and community believe--though he's also a burden, a best friend, an inspiration and an embarrassment, depending on who is asked and when. As this moving and entertaining documentary moves to its climax, Lior must pass through the gateway to manhood--his Bar Mitzvah. WINNER! Media Award, 2008 National Down Syndrome Congress. WINNER! 2008 Media Award, American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
