The Saracens Wheelchair Rugby Club practices every Saturday in a small town near London. A huge part of the fun are opponents crashing into each other with specially armored wheelchairs. Lily, a disabled filmmaker, begins exploring what makes these athletes tick. But what begins as an interest in parasport turns into an introspective look at herself. What’s her connection to her own disability? Why has she ignored it? Can she find a community within the rugby club?
