A documentary looking at how disabled people are portrayed as victims, villains or martyrs and how able-bodied filmmakers and actors have exploited negative depictions of disability to win awards and gain stardom.

The film examines the story of 104 Films who are working with disabled filmmakers to fight back against outdated and outmoded depictions of disability. Established in 2004 with the aim of creating a tectonic shift in the representation of disabled people both in front of and behind the camera. 104 films co-produce critically acclaimed award winning films such as the BAFTA nominated Notes on Blindness and I Am Breathing, plus the multi award winning Special People,the searing documentary Unrest which was shortlisted for the 2018 Best Documentary Oscar and recently ran the awareness campaign for greater representation of disabled talent in the film industry #MakeFilmEqual
