Tami, the director’s mother, lost her vision at the age of forty. The long process of going blind lasted for nearly ten years, during which time she made every effort to ensure that her children were not affected by any change to their routine. The first time the word “blind” was mentioned was when Tami began participating in lawn bowling competitions for the vision-impaired. The high point of the family’s struggle to cope with blindness is documented from the unique perspective of Ran, the son. With great sensitivity, Ran captures his mother’s determination to win a medal at the Special Olympics in Atlanta.
