When Kirsten Bruhn regained consciousness after a traffic accident in 1991 she couldn’t feel her legs. The months that followed were agonising for the 22-year-old: "I wanted to find a place where there was no past, no future and no pain." But then, eleven years later, she competed as a swimmer in the Athens Paralympics and won gold. In 2012, she participated in the London Paralympics and, drawing on all her strength and determination, once again secured success. In his film, experienced cinematographer Michael Hammon follows three athletes on their way to the London Paralympics, capturing impressive moments that describe their hopes and doubts, victories and defeats.
