A triumph over adversity.
31 December 1998 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

If you want to see a real hero, see Kenny, the story of a boy with no legs, survive in the real world. While the story is not totally true, Kenny's spirit is great. His parents are young and especially the father, cannot accept the fact that their son is the way he is. A great little film.
