Anthony Lopez and Rachel Handler, two disabled actors (both amputees), intend to restart their career after a long hiatus. Rachel was a promising young actress before surviving a car accident two years ago. Anthony was born with his physical disability and has been taking a break from acting due to a persistent lack of confidence. Both meet each other at the Nicu's Spoon Theater - a company whose mission is to give an opportunity to both disabled and non-disabled actors of various ages, gender, races and cultural backgrounds alike. Rachel, Anthony, and other cast members try to win recognition and, most importantly reaffirm their belief in themselves. As the premiere of the play is approaching, they encounter physical and self-esteem issues on their way.
