The athletes discuss training methods and techniques unique to blind sporting events and their coaches discuss how they learned that that blind are far more capable than they expected. The athletes also explain how their participation in sports has helped them develop self-confidence and overcome feelings of humiliation, denial and isolation. Their accomplishments also serve to shatter the general public's misconceptions and stereotypes about the disabled.
