A MILE IN OUR SHOES (Documentary Film)

Two years in the making...
is a documentary film for those of all ability's.
Filmed in the beauty of the Delaware National Forest of Pennsylvania, the film follows the journey of three backpackers, all living with physical challenges who have come together to hike for the first time. The trail takes the trio over streams and through rock filled forest as we learn about the difficulties and what it's like to walk

“A Mile in Our Shoes”.


Thank you all so much for watching.
