A diary come to life, portraying the true story of an Australian dancer who – after paralysing an arm in a motorcycle accident – journeys through the worlds of medicine, rehabilitation and disability, in recovery of self-expression. He finds new angles on perceiving the body, and new ways to move. "Body image" and concepts of "normality" are questioned. It is moving and inspirational, poetic and humorous.
