This film 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 documentary moves to its climax, Lior must pass through the gateway to manhood--his Bar Mitzvah.
Lior Liebling , Mordecai Liebling.
