Paralyzed below the waist after a car accident five years ago, Julie Hill was the first person in the world to receive a permanent electronic implant that has literally put her back on her feet. The implant stimulates her muscles electronically, enabling her to stand, and eventually walk. Soon she will be able to cycle. This program records her every step, as she overcomes her handicap to take on the world. Filmed over five years, this is a story of intense effort, of ups an downs and, for Julie, a final triumph.
