Roadside Attractions is releasing WHERE HOPE GROWS in theaters on May 15, 2015. It is a wonderful feature film that is breaking new ground by casting a young man with Down syndrome, David DeSanctis, in a lead role.
The film has the support of Special Olympics and Best Buddies, a volunteer organization which creates opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
David is an inspiration in his own right. He lights up the room with his charismatic, funny and smart personality. At 22 years-old, he is a Louisville native who has a passion for motivating others. When cast in the film’s starring role, the director (Chris Dowling) asked David if he could read; David licked his finger to turn the first page of the script and speedily memorized 130 lines.
An ardent music lover, David used his own self-curated music playlists to help memorize scenes, as well as for dance breaks to help unwind. He can also cite thousands of song titles, lyrics and artists off the top of his head.
Kristoffer Polaha is a co-lead of WHERE HOPE GROWS. He is a talented actor who you will recognize from AMC’s “Mad Men,” MTV’s series “Awkward,” the CW’s “Ringer” and FOX’s “Backstorm."
WHERE HOPE GROWS is a story of adversity and triumph that follows professional baseball player Calvin Campbell, who was sent to an early retirement due to panic attacks at the plate. Even though he had all the talent for the big leagues, he struggles with the curveballs life has thrown him.
As his life heads in a downward spiral, it is suddenly awakened and invigorated by the most unlikely person – Produce, a young man with Down syndrome who works at the local grocery store. Winner of the 2014 Heartland Film Festival Audience Choice Award, the film explores the unlikely pair’s bond and friendship while tackling universal themes of faith, hope and love.

Such and AMAZING movie!! And David did an EXCELLENT job as Produce!! I'm so BLESSED to call David my friend. He's one the silliest people I know with a TRUE HEART OF GOLD! He is so much like his character in this movie. I asked him "Whatbwas your favorite scene to film".; thinking he would say driving the car, and he ACTUALLY said "Playing baseball with the fruit behind the grocery store". 😂😂😂
If you haven't seen this movie PLEASE watch it. I hope that people will get at least one message from this move and that's, That NO MATTER who you are, what disability you may have, be true to yourself DON'T judge others, ALWAYS be kind, and if you TRULY set your mind to do something you CAN do it! 💖
