If you flip through the pages of RTE Producer Ann-Marie Power's family photo album, it looks like she came from a
normal, loving, Irish Catholic family. There are photos of her playing with her younger brother in the back yard; visiting the
elephants at the zoo; a family portrait with smiles all around. Explore how her relationship and feelings changed towards her
family as she grew older and realized there was in fact something very different about her younger brother, David.
David was produced by Ann-Marie Power of RTE, the Irish
radio service. This program is part of the international
documentary exchange series Crossing Boundaries.
