While a birth defect rendered Jessica Cox armless, it hasn’t diminished her ability to create an amazing, adventurous and ambitious life for herself. Whether it was through earning her college
degree or a Black Belt in Taekwondo, or learning how to drive a car or pilot an airplane, Cox hasn’t allowed circumstances beyond her control to define her. This uplifting film documents her achievements while following her over a two-year period as she mentors children and families facing challenges of their own.
