Pennhurst is a story of segregation, abandonment, and the meaning of home as told by the people that lived in, worked at, and crusaded for one of the largest and oldest Intellectual and Developmental Disability Institutions in the United States. The facility, in it's closing, challenged society's perception of those with intellectual disabilities and ultimately fought for better rights, rights that are still being fought today.
