This documentary accompanies eight individuals with disabilities and their guides as they face the daunting challenges of rafting down 225 miles of the Colorado River and wilderness of Grand Canyon. Through interviews shot during the trip, the men and women, all of whom live with significant disabilities including blindness, cerebral palsy, paraplegia, quadriplegia, spina bifida and multiple sclerosis, share their insights to overcome prejudice and negative attitudes, maintain their dignity and assert themselves. During their life-affirming journey, they reflect on their adventure and affirm that it is every individual's right to choose what they are willing to do and risk in pursuit of their dreams.
