Still image from Without Pity: A Film About Abilities

An HBO documentary that celebrates the efforts of people with disabilities to live full, productive lives. Looks at a cross-section of disabled Americans: a young woman with cerebral palsy who cares for her baby; a six-year-old born without arms or legs who goes to school; a professor with polio who teaches the history of discrimination against the disabled; and a young quadriplegic man who struggles daily with depression, yet is determined to overcome it and get on with his life. Narrated by Christopher Reeve.
