Synopsis

Documentary from filmmakers Henry Alex Rubin and Dana Adam Shapiro, following the quadriplegic men who play the sport of 'quad rugby'. Driven and determined to overcome the limitations of their disabilities, the men who play the sport professionally can risk serious injuries in the tough, close-contact game. In the run up to the 2004 Paralympics in Athens, Team USA and Team Canada begin to square off for the showdown in the quad rugby final, as the filmmakers subvert clichés and stereotypes of what it means to be disabled, and what it means to want to win.
