普通の家族

tuf
Coverage that follows a severely disabled married couple from their marriage, giving birth, and raising their children, for 22 years.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Akimoto have cerebral palsy. They got married in 1992 as they sought independent from their parents. Before long, the couple had two children. Child rearing by severely disabled people is almost unheard of in Japan. This couple struggles and overcomes many obstacles whilst raising their children.
20 years have passed since the couple first became parents. The oldest son, now an adult, said to us, “we are just an ordinary family.”
