Synopsis

While navigating daily discrimination, a filmmaker who inhabits and loves her unusual body searches the world for another person like her, and explores what it takes to love oneself fiercely despite the pervasiveness of ableism.

Quotes

"Like 2020 Sundance breakout Crip Camp, Glendining’s film is a well argued and moving reminder that we still live in a world where too many see disability as something that needs to be ‘fixed’ rather than more willingly accommodated." - Screen Daily 

"an unexpectedly badass victory cry" - Reel News Daily

"a profoundly inspiring celebration of identity and a true act of love" - That Shelf
