This is very much a personal story. Following his rugby accident, Craig wants to gain a greater degree of independence but is accepting of his condition. He believes he can use his disability to inspire others and, as a practising Baptist, spread his faith. He does not have a strong opinion on stem cell research.
The ﬁlm starts with Craig competing in a dramatic wheelchair rugby game to demonstrate how his life has changed. It features Craig being examined by a consultant who talks about his condition and explains the treatment options.
Craig interviews Dr Janet Johnston who explains stem cell research using microscopic images of ﬂowers dividing. Craig also speaks to a Baptist Minister who raises several of the moral issues concerning the science. The ﬁlm ends with Craig’s thoughts on the treatment and his hopes and concerns for the future.
