A wheelchair-riding social activist takes us out dancing with the avant-garde of
disabled artists and radical thinkers - unstoppable in their quest for “equality, justice,
and a place on the dance floor!”
At age 23, Simi Linton was injured while hitchhiking to Washington to protest the war in Vietnam. Suddenly a young disabled college student, she confronted discrimination she couldn't have imagined before. Simi emerges as a resourceful activist, and in time realizes that love, sexuality, and dance can once again be central to her life.
