  My Family Is Special

My family is special in lots of ways... My family is special. Some days Alex is more special than usual. He is my brother. A very naughty little boy misbehaves very badly - but his family still love him. My Family is Special screened at the 2004 Mardi Gras Film Festival and the 2004 Short Sited Film Festival.
