A tale of love,honour and revenge following the US quad rugby team preparing for the 2004 Paralympics. While the rugby scenes are filled with ferocious passion and harrowing wheelchair duels (these men are tough), the film really uses sport as a way into the players' lives, hopes and fears. To see these men in the full force of athletic exuberance is to learn something valuable about the human will. One player's motto: "No arms. No legs. No problem."
