Summary
Here is a realistic yet positive portrayal of four women with serious physical disabilities who have found meaningful love relationships. With candor, they each talk about the struggle for self esteem, the search for love, and the challenge of finding sexual expression. Helen, in a wheelchair because of a rare bone disease, thought she might be too frail for a physical relationship. Her doctor assured her that she was perfectly able, and her relationship with her boyfriend blossomed. Gail, who has cerebral palsy, needed counseling to help her overcome her reserve. She now has developed a fulfilling relationship with Roger. Amethya, a lesbian who is severely hearing impaired, became active in a disabled women's network and met her lover there. Barbara, legally blind since birth, overcame the challenge of widowhood and single parenting to find another love. This important film challenges the stereotypical notion that women with disabilities are asexual beings
