The Special Olympics continues in Los Angeles for a few more days, but the games is about more than sports.  It's  also a platform to highlight the lives and work of people with intellectual disabilities. 

Like Kelly Donovan - a young woman with Down Syndrome. She's the focus of a new documentary called "Kelly's Hollywood." written and produced by her brother, Brian.

It tells the story of Kelly's quest to make it in Tinsel Town -- and the unbreakable bond with her brother.

Brian Donovan joined Take Two's A Martinez to talk about Kelly and the amount of life she packed into 40 years. 

"Kelly's Hollywood" will be screened at the University of Southern California on  Friday July 31 at 1pm  as part of the Special Olympics
