Larry and Sophie are in love. Larry has Down syndrome and Sophie has severe epilepsy. With the help of their care worker, Tom, they sneak away to a hotel room during a supervised trip to the movies. While Tom is distracted with Larry and Sophie, the group gets restless and sets out on their own adventures: shopping at the mall and pints at a pub. Sanctuary is a truly subversive piece of cinema about two young people trying to be together, in a world doing everything to keep them apart.
