Summary
  • Ghana is not a good place to have a disability--parents either poison their disabled children, or leave them to die in the forest--it's called "seeing off." At best, the disabled are expected to be beggars. Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah was born with one deformed leg, which led his father to abandon his mother. Until her early death, she championed her son, enrolling him in school and taking him to various doctors searching for a cure. Her encouragement proved long lasting, as this documentary tells how Emmanuel became a successful amputee athlete. Today, he works to bring political and social change to Ghana's disabled
