On the banks of the River Dee in the North of Scotland, is a Camphill Community were volunteers live alongside children with special needs. Seen from the outside, the patience, dedication and energy of these volunteers is nothing short of saintly. But, SIDE BY SIDE allows the audience an honest view from within, revealing the volunteers' own special need for community life. This film is about the people who chose to live with and care for those with special needs. Why do they do it? What challenges face them, and what is there to gain as a result?
