Brief Explanation

‘We’re The Superhumans’ features over 140 cast members, from all across the world. From a drummer with no arms, to a blind sprinter, to a woman flying a plane with her feet, this film captures the ability of disabled people, both on and off the track and field. Set to the iconic Sammy Davis Jr track ‘Yes I Can’, it was was re-recorded by the specially assembled band of disabled musicians, featuring the lead vocalist Tony Dee. These superhumans are brought to life in a truly motivational film about real people overcoming real struggles with optimism and purpose.
