Synopsis:
24-year-old Jacob Nossell is really bright, but he does not fit the typical idea of the perfect life. Jacob is living with cerebral palsy, a congenital physical disability. In addition to affecting his speech, it causes muscle cramps and stiffness. His words run together when he speaks and his movements are limited. With a normal intellect in a weakened body, Jacob is the embodiment of the dilemma of normality - he is too disabled to be truly accepted by society and too normal to accept his own fate.
