Not only will David DeSanctis star in his first major motion picture, Where Hope Grows, but he is also one of the few actors with Down Syndrome to have a leading role in a feature film. DeSanctis plays a grocery-store worker named Produce, who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a professional baseball player forced into early retirement.

Where Hope Grows will be released on May 15th, and is expected to appear on about 300 screens across the country. Learn more about the film, and check out the preview here!
