Nick has cerebral palsy. He is an adult, living with his parents, who is often treated as a child but physically feels like an old man. His brother Chris has spent 35 years dealing with the reality of having a twin brother that struggles through life in ways he does not. To help him work through this chronic guilt, Chris has been photographing and documenting Nick's life for nearly two decades. Now, as an opportunity arises for Nick to finally take his first steps towards independence, Chris has to deal with his own fears and feelings about this change.
