Summer Kozai contracted bacterial meningitis at the age of 26, and had to have all four of her limbs amputated. She spent four years in hospital, and underwent 20 operations in the first year alone.  But, she considers herself blessed - her brain function and vision have remained intact. Her quest to regain independence is a testament to her spirit and courage, reminding us that each day is a chance to prove that nothing is impossible.  This documentary, a project for students in the Leadership Class at her alma mater, 'Iolani School, in Honolulu, Hawaii, ​shows us that we can all choose to live with grace and take the high road no matter the circumstances.
