  1. As a disabled person (cerebral palsy) something about this documentary always bothered me. Yes the work and dedication of these incredible athletes should absolutely be celebrated. The treatment of the games by the Rio organisers should absolutely be called out and examined (which this documentary does.) but the film ultimately furthers the narrative of the Paralympics as one of the few methods of disabled succes in a way that always really bothered me. The majority of the disabled community will never be “superhero’s”in the way mainstream media wants us to be. The Paralympics holds some of the responsibility for installing this “inspiration porn” mindset.

  2. Usually when you give a movie here you duplicate it in Netflix country specific channels, why is this documentary only available in English ? Either add it to the individual country Netflix YouTube channels or add at least English subtitles in all possible options !!!

    On the one hand, it's a shame to have to promote such fantastic people like this 🙂

    Netflix thanks you for posting this documentary here.
    And a reminder Tokyo 2020 Paralympics starts August 24 🙂
