Tin Soldiers

Logline: “Tin Soldiers” is a fascinating film perspective into the world of amputees, people who have spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and paralysis, all doing adaptive sports.

Elevator Pitch: 
This film can inspire people to make a change in their life through the power of commitment and sport. To feel better psychically and mentally is a key to feeling better emotionally, which begins to resolve the hardest challenge people with physical disabilities face; overcoming depression. This film is about believing in yourself through adapting. We have documented people who have began their journey of healing and finding passion, and their flame can reach out to many others who desperately need it.

Production Team:
Director/Producer/Cinematographer/Editor – Ben Duffy
Producer/Cinematographer/Assisting Editor – Michael J Sassano

About the Film:

Current Status:
