This is a feature length documentary about making the most of life and following your dreams despite limitations (still in production). It started as a vision to make a documentary about amputees doing what they love – showing anything is possible when you put your mind to it… that amputees don’t see the world through, or buy into, a disabled label – sans the sappy violin treatment.
The film follows along as I attempt to build a 300zx Twin Turbo racecar and drive it competitively – taking on many new challenges and pushing the limits of my “disability” in the process.
But it’s become so much more than that for me. It’s a journey film where I begin to identify with the fact that – yes, I’m an amputee, and yes, some people may look at me as handicapped, disabled, etc. – exploring what that really means to me – becoming more comfortable with who I am, and how the world may or may not perceive me. More importantly, how I perceive myself.
