Nine-year old Nadia Di Franco was born with disabling spinal bifida, a malformation of the backbone. In this touching little documentary she shares her life, her feelings, and her private thoughts. She considers herself an ordinary person but she is extraordinary indeed. At the time this film was made Nadia and her family lived in Toronto. This award-winning tribute to bravery and optimism was produced by the National Film Board of Canada.
