AIMING FOR GLORY

Four top-athletes – including 17-time American Paralympic medalist Oksana Masters – set out to pursue their dream of qualifying for the Paralympic Games. Coming from different countries and specializing in a variety of disciplines (para-triathlon, handbike, para-swimming and para-taekwondo), they all share the same fighting spirit. And their steely determination has the power to change the way society looks at differently-abled people.

 

From intensive trainings to championships, but also at the core of their daily lives far outside the field, we share their existence and follow them on their journey towards a victory that’s not just about medals.

 

Over and above its prodigious immersion in the world of parasports, this is a sensitive, committed, choral documentary that raises essential questions about accessibility for all and the visibility of differently-abled people in our society.
