As Claire begins work on the most exciting commission of her career – a public sculpture for the 2012 Olympics – she has a life-changing stroke. As doubts are raised over Claire’s physical ability to create the work, her commission is changed and she is asked to create a sculpture for the Paralympics. Claire is now considered a 'disabled artist' and whilst struggling to accept the way she has been labeled, she questions whether she is really the best person to represent Paralympiads.
