This is an awesome documentary in which three people that use a wheelchair for mobility, video tape themselves and take you up close and personal in their daily lives. It allows us to see their ups and downs as they adapt their environment and show us how they live. As a future clinician, it was a great resource for me. It gave me new ideas of ways to adapt the environment that I did not think about previously. It also reminded me to always keep my treatment client centered and to consider each client as their own. I think this is great for any student or person that is interested in working with people with disabilities. It's a perfect reminder to appreciate life.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
