We meet a young boy who is in the Guinness book of records for performing flips in his wheelchair; a man who escaped war-torn Uganda and now assists other refugees; a Korean professor who recently became a quadriplegic, but does not consider himself unfortunate; and a survivor of the Holocaust who believes that "the worst can bring out the best in us." In the filmmaker's unique style, these uplifting portraits are told without the intrusion of a narrator. You will feel as if you are sitting in the same room with these people as they inspire and teach you to draw out the resilience within yourself.
 
It will inspire and teach you to draw out the resilience within yourself.
