In this intimate portrait, several dwarfs who appeared in Jan Krawitz and Thomas Ott's 1982 film Little People welcome the camera into their lives once again. Through a prism of "then and now" the characters in the film reveal how their lives have changed, and not changed, as they confront physical and emotional challenges with humor, grace, and sometimes frustration. What is it like to date or find a spouse? What about the decision to have children with a 75% chance that their offspring will be a dwarf? And what does the future hold for dwarfs now that many genetic conditions, including dwarfism can be diagnosed in utero? This film provides a unique perspective on a proud and active community that many people know only from cultural stereotypes.
