    • Synopsis
    • What does Europe look like through the eyes of people with a physical disability? This is the question that filmmaker Mari Sanders, who uses a wheelchair due to his cerebral palsy, sets out to answer during an unusual journey through Europe. He criss-crosses Europe; from Italy to Sweden and from the UK to Bulgaria. Mari tries to find out what connects and divides Europeans from his own perspective, which leads to eye-opening encounters. Wheelchair Roadmovie challenges us to
      re-examine our own dilemmas, dreams and ideals, and above all repeatedly demonstrates the universal power of perseverance.
