Andrew Cunningham is a typical 13-year-old. He complains about studying and spends hours playing on Xbox Live with friends. The only difference is that he’s in a powered wheelchair. Born with multicore myopathy, a rare form of muscular dystrophy, Andrew relies on his father Tom for nearly everything. As he approaches eighth grade, Andrew finds a sense of normality and brotherhood in an unlikely friendship with the 21-year-old Tony Reuter, who was born with brittle bone disease and also had a difficult childhood. Together, Andrew and Tony look to the future as they approach milestones in their lives and prepare for their next steps forward.
Producer and Director: Andrew Hida
