On a quest to lose their virginity, three young men with disabilities embark on a wild road trip. Their families think they are on a wine tour in Spain, but this is a cover for their true destination-a Spanish brothel that caters to people with disabilities.
Like religion and race, disability moves between being a defining characteristic or coincidental attribute, depending on the perceptions of others and context, as much as the impact of the impairment. Lissner will discuss how these two films depict evolving perspectives on disability and their influence identity and sense of self.
