Daniel is in his twenties and mentally retarded. Though he is just a short ferry ride away from the classes on the mainland that will help him adjust to the adult world, Daniel is afraid to board the boat that will take him toward independence. With the love of a good friend, and a little extra patience, Daniel is able to take the first important step toward helping himself. Produced by Christine Cornish and Leon Marr.
