Will Lautzenheiser, a former professor of film and screenwriting at Boston University, was about to begin teaching at Montana State University when a pain in his leg threatened his entire world. Diagnosed with a bacterial infection, Will's organs began to shut down, and doctors were forced to amputate his arms and legs.

This inspiring documentary details Will’s progress as he adjusts to his new life. We follow him as his relationship with his partner evolves; as he considers a double-arm transplant, and when he turns to stand-up comedy to help deal with life's challenges.

Through it all, Will inspires everyone he touches by allowing them to laugh along with his hardships and find the positive side to every obstacle.
