Young people adjusting to a new disability or eager to start playing a new sport may want to watch this film about finding ways to remain physically active, regardless of one's special challenges. Segments show disabled individuals playing hockey, skiing, driving cars, and enjoying other risky activities. The emphasis is on helping the disabled find fun ways to combat the loneliness and isolation that disabilities often cause. The film should provide encouragement to many, including those interested in such simpler games as tennis.
