Tianyi Wang completed his thesis film On Your Own while a student at Rochester Institute of Technology.  After graduation he returned to his native China.

 

 The film is about a 50-year-old single father, Frank (Robert Linquist), with advanced lung cancer who must make his daughter, Giana (Katlin Detsch) who has Down syndrome, understand his death and provide for her care after his death.

  

On Your Own addresses the real life concerns of family members whose loved ones have Down syndrome; we support this story for the insight it gives on the Down syndrome community.

 

Alexander's Angels supported this movie and appears among the credits at the end of the movie.
