This true-life documentary follows the journey of Paul Leimkuehler who lost his leg during the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. He turned his disadvantage into an advantage by building his own artificial leg and opening a prosthetic business. He returns to the world of sports triumphantly after designing the first pair of ski outriggers in the U.S. launching the adaptive skiing movement that earned him a spot in the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame, the U.S. Disabled Snow Sports Hall of Fame and the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame. The film follows the influence of his legacy on the Paralympic skiers and snowboarders today including gold medalist, Mike Schultz, narrator Andrew Kurka and the evolution of technology in adaptive sports.
