And...Scene is a documentary feature made with the intent of showing actress & wheelchair dancer Jamie Petrone’s journey to walk again using a robotic exoskeleton. Jamie is a lifelong performer whose passions are singing and musical theatre.
At age 19, a heinous misdiagnosis and near lethal dosage of doctor-prescribed medication resulted in progressive semi-paralysis from Steven’s Johnson Syndrome. This condition is a systemic allergic reaction which is often fatal, forcing Jamie to become a wheelchair user for the past 12 years. After a series of grueling trials beginning in February 2013, Jamie became a participant in a pilot study for a robotic exoskeleton.
