About the Film

A film that explores the amazing possibilities in all of us as seen through one young girl who overcame her diagnosis to inspire a movement

Follow a father’s attempt to get on the Moth Main Stage in New York City to tell the story about his 9-year old daughter. As he workshops the story, you learn the incredible story of his daughter, Eva, who was born with severe cerebral palsy. She is diagnosed with the impossibility to talk and walk; and the inability to ever use her legs, arms and hands functionally. Many defined her by this diagnosis and her appearance. The very people in the medical, social work, education and therapy world who should be advocating for her didn’t believe in her possibilities. She did. Eva created her own communication system, using her legs, head movement and facial expressions; she worked over the span of 4 years to develop as an artist, moving from a fist to opening fingers, to grasping and holding a brush. Along the way, Eva inspired others she met (and even those she didn’t). A fish biologist, folk singer, pediatric neurologist, service dog trainer, occupational therapist, artist. All forever changed by Eva and her superabilities. At home, watch the family come together through tremendous adversity and tragedy to shine and start a movement of change. Be the possibility in all of us and help Eva’s story be told.
