Breaking up with a Down syndrome stereotype

The number one positive stereotype given to people with Down syndrome seems to be that "they are all so sweet." Like any stereotype, whether positive or negative, it makes the group seem one-dimensional. People with Down syndrome actually have a normal range of emotions. While there are certainly some very sweet, friendly people who have Ds, there are also some who are shy and even occasionally unkind. Just like the rest of us.

Unkind? Why yes! Here to shatter the sweetness stereotype is our own Emma Lane, starring in her first movie.
