“Miracle Body: Breaking Limits” is a documentary focused on celebrated wheelchair Paralympian Tatyana McFadden, who was born paralyzed from the waist down.
The film crew went to Russia, where McFadden spent her early childhood, and discovered that her early years were spent without a wheelchair, using her hands to move around.
To better understand the secrets of her near-superhuman athletic dominance, the producers conducted a scientific analysis of her body to reveal what sets her apart and allows her to achieve such incredible feats.
