Director Statement

Corey Chiou and I briefly met through a Spanish class we shared together at Hilliard Davidson High School in 2016. It wasn’t until later that year that we became friends through other mutual friends. Corey still had his left leg the first time I saw him. Later that semester, he walked in one day with a brand new prosthetic leg.

From the start, Corey was always someone who was supportive of others and helped them through their problems, despite often having far worse problems himself. He was one of the first few people to support my passion for filmmaking when I first started and made sure to compliment me on my latest video every time he saw me during lunch. It was incredibly impactful on my confidence as a filmmaker and my life in general.

Fast forward to 2019, it’s all come full circle. This documentary goes beyond disability. This film is a message to everyone out there suffering from a limitation in their life.
