This film documents the work and personal lives of five physically disabled women. It informs both disabled women and the able-bodied about the possibilities of adaptations in the workplace, the use of technological aids, and the need for support systems if disabled women are to have satisfying and productive lives. The film undermines the stereotypes and prejudices that further hinder a large segment of our population. National Film Board (NFB).
