Filming - Annapolis
After filming in DC we headed to the Annapolis, Maryland area to meet Rosa and Nick Marcellino, another sibling set. Rosa has Down syndrome and inspired her brother Nick to testify before the Maryland legislature about removing the r-word from state laws - because of her entire family's efforts, the federal law that ultimately passed was named Rosa's Law, after Rosa. We filmed with the Marcellino family for four days and captured Rosa at school, Maddie's graduation party and quality time at the Marcellino home - it was evident that Rosa is the center of this very loving family whose actions are now an important part of history!
