This is a film about Afshin Naghouni, a well known Iranian-British painter who suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury after falling from the seventh floor of a building during a birthday party in Tehran. He was able to move to England seventeen years ago for treatment and has rebuilt his life, getting married and now working as an artist from his wheelchair. His paintings are in large scales and some of them are shown in very famous London galleries with high prices.
Followed by post-screening Q&A session with director.
