This particular video is part of a public information campaign aimed to encourage treating a disabled person according to their character instead of their disability. The video depicts a woman with Down's Syndrome being interviewed for a job. At first, things seem to be going downhill as she feels judged by her disability, but the ending has a surprising twist.
