No votes so far

Three completely different stories are told through dance.

A woman who became physically disabled as a college student, leading her to discover a deeper love for dance, is the subject of this inspiring documentary from director-producers Christian von Tippelskirch and Simi Linton. Linton, after losing her husband, best friend and the ability to walk in a devastating 1971 car accident, found hope and purpose by rededicating herself to dance, and becoming an outspoken and successful advocate for disabled people.
