On Challenged Wings emphasizes the notion that recreational activities are important tools that help the physically challenged reach their greatest potential. Challenged to achieve what was previously viewed as unobtainable; handicapped men, women and children can now be found scaling a rocky ledge, rafting a river, windsurfing, running the Boston Marathon or skiing down a mountainside. Their achievements not only erase social misconceptions concerning the limitations of handicapped people, but also serve as powerful messages to everyone on building self-esteem and confidence, and maximizing one’s potential. Produced and directed by Tom Feliu.
