Storyline

A Documentary chronicling the travels of a team of reporters and crew across America in a hand painted RV. Each of the reporters have a disability ranging from Down's Syndrome to spastic cerebal palsy and their own style for gathering news. The basic approach is "man on the street" reporting and the interactions are sometimes hysterical, sometimes confusing but always honest. Written by Hans Delbruk

A humorous and inspiring journey through the hearts and souls of severely disabled people
15 January 2002 | by (Tulsa, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This documentary is the kind of film that makes you want to be alive! At first glance, the idea of severely disabled people trekking across the country and interviewing people for their "news" show seems kind of depressing. While many people talk to the reporters, others are jerks and ignore them. Yet through scene after scene, the spirit of the cast will warm your heart. The people in this film are truly inspiring. Plus, it's funny as hell ! Best documentary I've seen since "I'm from Hollywood."
