ABOUT THE FILM
Born without arms as the result of a severe birth defect, Jessica Cox never allowed herself to believe that she couldn't accomplish her dreams. An accomplished martial artist, college graduate and motivational speaker, Jessica is also the world's only armless airplane pilot, a mentor, and an advocate for the disabled. Directed by Emmy Award winning filmmaker Nick Spark, RIGHTFOOTED chronicles Jessica's amazing story of overcoming adversity and her ongoing work to change the lives of other people – disabled and “normal”. Her message is not just about disability, it’s about the importance of being different. That’s a belief she continues to share, group by group, family by family, child by child, in the USA and abroad, and with your help she will reach many, many more people. The goal of this film is to touch and inspire anyone who feels different, and create enormous change. This documentary is the incredible story of a woman who would not let even the most severe physical limitations stop her. It’s a universal story that will touch and inspire anyone who feels different for any reason.
