What is the film about: A humble midwestern basketball junkie with high expectations riding on her shoulders, Rose balances her commitments to Team USA, competing as a student-athlete, and finishing her schooling to become a first-generation college graduate. Honoring her own bittersweet history and the fight for equity and representation by Paralympians before, Rose forges a new path into professional wheelchair ball abroad in the male-dominated league. When the COVID-19 pandemic hits and challenges rise abroad, Rose pushes forward towards her dreams of back-to-back Paralympic gold in Tokyo.

Why are we asking for your support?
As independent documentary filmmakers we champion underrepresented voices to help illuminate powerful stories of real people that we truly believe can help change the world.
A common challenge in our industry is securing the financial backing and distribution to make great films and get them in front of the right audiences. There are barriers we must overcome as artists to gain access to studios, streaming platforms, and investors for documentaries. This is especially true for independent artists sharing stories of underrepresented communities.
When PARA is released at film festivals and on streaming platforms, the world will have an opportunity to learn about the powerful women shaping the Paralympic movement and young women around the world will have an example of what’s possible.
Our creative team has invested years of dedication, sweat equity and our own money into this film. We started filming in 2018 and are currently halfway to completing this movie. And we’re asking for your help through the finish line.
