Angie: Tales of Determination
Directed by Christopher Darton
Documentary | 33 minutes | Canada | 2021 | English
Born with multiple congenital birth defects, the most noticeable being the limb difference of her right arm and hand, Angie was always encouraged by her parents to do whatever she sets her to. The word "cant'" doesn't exist in her vocabulary. After being diagnosed with breast cancer and completing her treatment, Angie decided to live out her dream to start riding a motorcycle with one hand. "It was always something that I would do one day. When faced with your own mortality, you realize that one day might never come."
Angie is a force. Overcoming everything that stands in her way and exuding a personality and propensity to help others by sharing her story. Embraced by the motorcycle community, riding changed Angie’s life introducing her to a whole new family, one who accepted her based solely on who she is.
