An award-winning documentary about disability, caregiving and interdependence. THE KEY OF G tells the story of Gannet, a 22-year-old man with severe disabilities, as he prepares to move out of his mother's home and into a San Francisco apartment with three musicians and artists as primary caregivers.

Winner of the 2007 Golden Gate Award for Best Bay Area Documentary at the 50th San Francisco International Film Festival, THE KEY OF G provides a model of how someone with serious disabilities can be integrated into the community and live a truly full life. Along the way, it challenges conventional notions about independence, empathy, and disability, and provides a glimpse into a kind of life seldom seen on television.

“One of the best parts of the job is watching people start understanding that he’s a full person — just a person who goes about it all differently.” - Donal Mosher, one of Gannet’s caregivers
