In 1958, amongst the children born with spina bifida is Riva Lehrer. Her parents and doctors are determined to "fix" her, sending her the message that she is broken. Enduring countless medical interventions, Riva tries her best to be a good patient so she can be cured. Everything changes when, as an adult, Riva is invited to join a group of artists, writers, and performers who are building Disability Culture. Their work is daring and edgy, rejecting tropes that define disabled people as frightening or worthless. They insist that disability is an opportunity for creativity and resistance. Emboldened, Riva asks if she can paint their portraits—inventing an intimate and collaborative process that will transform the way she sees herself, others, and the world. Each portrait story begins to transform the myths she’s been told her whole life about her body, her sexuality, and other measures of normal.
