Quote:
"I'm in a unique position: people identify with me, especially people who knew me, because I wasn't disabled until I was 46. So I know those fears people have of being disabled. This film is about talking back to stereotypes of disability—and that I lived through everyone's worst nightmare."
-- Bonnie Sherr Klein
