Shriver shows how his teachers have been the world's most forgotten minority: people with intellectual disabilities. He shares the quiet legacy of his aunt Rosemary, a Kennedy whose intellectual disability kept her far from the limelight, and inspired his family to devote their careers to helping the most vulnerable. We meet the individuals of Special Olympics who helped Shriver come of age and find a deeper and more meaningful way to see the world.
