This documentary is about Linn Hendershot, a Polio survivor—who defied the odds again and again to effect change and make a difference.

At a time when disabled populations were considered “crippled” and doomed to a life of inertia, Linn used the powers of perseverance and persuasion to destroy those perceptions to break into sports and racing—industries that would normally shut him out. He served a lead role on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Committee on Disability Access—going up against the Goliath of money and power—and coming out a winner with many improvements made to ensure the venues were more accessible. He not only defied the odds of survival, recovering in a hospital from severe pneumonia, but he spearhead the creation of a computer lab and a therapeutic garden while he was there so he and his fellow patients could connect with the outside world.

Linn made it known that he wasn’t here to make a career he was here to make a difference and with the help of family and friends…
he did.
