Michael Wells was born through a breached birth and suffered severe neurological damage culminating in cerebral palsy. He was not allowed in any school and did not receive any formal education, but learned to read and write through watching "Sesame Street", and surprised his family when he wrote the words I AM NOT A DUMMY on a piece of paper. This film follows him on his journey to get his book published, the daily challenges faced by his 74-year-old caregiver and father, and Michael's tireless fight as an advocate for disability rights.
