In this award-winning film from Argentina, Anita Feldman, a young woman with Down Syndrome, lives a happy routine life, meticulously cared for by her mother. One tragic morning changes everything, and Anita is left alone, confused and helpless. As she wanders through the city, she not only learns to care for herself, but touches the lives of those around her.

Anita is the latest from renowned filmmaker Marcos Carnevale, director of "Elsa and Fred." The film stars Academy Award nominated actress Norma Aleandro (called the "Meryl Streep" of Argentina), Peto Menahem, Luis Luque, Leonor Manso (who was named Best Supporting Actress at the 2009 Argentine Academy Awards for her performance), and introduces Alejandra Manzo as Anita!
