Default World's Smallest Kids

World’s Smallest Kids





Very little is known about the smallest people in the world. Primordial Dwarfism is the rarest type of dwarfism that results in smaller body size in all stages of life beginning from before birth; rarely growing more than 3 feet. It is estimated that there are only 100 individuals in the world with the disorder, 40 of them are in the US. We travel to America and Canada to meet 3 of them: 13 year-old (14 at the end of the film), Taylor Marcello, 12 year-old Hannah Kritzeck and 4 year-old Tyler White.

We follow our main character, Taylor, 2 feet 9 inches tall and weighing just 17 pounds; at a time in her life when body image is becoming paramount and being “different” is her biggest nightmare. How many toddler-sized girls do you know who are going through puberty and worrying about the opposite sex? Socially, she is becoming more aware – and dealing with the early adult world. She is at a normal school, hanging out with kids of normal size, going to the mall and the school dance, and trying to be an average kid.

We join her as she is dealing with all these challenges, as well as just having had major spine surgery. We follow her journey of recovery as she takes brave steps to become stronger, culminating in her primordial dwarf birthday party - probably the biggest primordial dwarf gathering ever - where she is finally able to swim and hang out with her friends after months of resting.

We meet her friend, Hannah, dealing with the same social issues, and slowly accepting the fact that she is, and always will be, little. Hannah will need to have the same surgery as Taylor – but has not yet come to terms with this. We also meet Tyler White, a 4 year old from Canada, whose British parents are in the early diagnosis stages of their son’s condition. We follow them on their journey to meet other primordial dwarves for the first time in the hope of gaining reassurance about their son’s future.

A truly inspirational and emotive slice of life.
