Shine On

Shine On

Shine On chronicles seven girls & young women with various physical and intellectual disabilities and their families as they participate in the 5th annual Miss “You Can Do It” Pageant. The contestants are not judged by the fit of the gown or by how perfect they look, but on how brightly they're hearts and spirit shine through.

The real winners of this pageant may just be the family and friends cheering in the audience. In a world where people are always asking what's wrong with these girls and young women, SHINE ON is celebrating what's right with them.
