America ReFramed

Rachel Is | Promo

Preview: Season 2 Episode 16 | 30s

Rachel wants what most people her age want - to move out of her mother's house. This dream of independence seems impossible as Rachel, who is developmentally disabled, can't be left alone and the social services needed for her to live an "adult life" are unavailable. _Rachel Is_ is an honest, heartbreaking and funny film about parenthood, disability, and the universal struggle for happiness.
