Toni Kalem, best known to contemporary audiences for her role as Angie Bompensiero on The Sopranos, stars in this ABC Afterschool Special as the teenaged victim of a crippling accident. Helping the girl overcome her handicap -- and her resentment over her situation -- are a concerned teacher (Dee Wallace) and a rebellious wheelchair-bound high schooler (Scott Baio). The story reaches an exhilarating climax as the two teens lobby to establish special bathroom facilities in their school -- and to participate in an annual six-mile race, which traditionally does not welcome or accommodate handicapped people.
