Here’s the film synopsis:
IMPERFECT is a story of artists…who live and perform with the uniqueness of disability, and therefore have historically been denied their place in the spotlight. The documentary chronicles a unique company of actors who have all nature of disabilities – from spinal cord injury to Parkinson’s Disease, cerebral palsy to autism – as they attempt an unprecedented version of Kander, Ebb, and Fosse’s beloved musical “Chicago”.
Capturing the raw, honest stories of the actors inside the production process and outside the theatre in their everyday lives, IMPERFECT reveals a rare behind-the-scenes look at talented artists who push to succeed as professional performers, no matter the obstacles.
IMPERFECT crushes stale notions of disability and affirms the human condition…in all its uniqueness.
