Synopsis

Whilst training for a triathlon, the fervent athlete crashed her bike into a sign post, breaking her back, collar bone and ribs, leaving her paralysed from the waist down and unable to ever walk again.She broke the news to her friends and family through a Facebook post, posting an image of herself wearing a neck brace and smiling just a few hours after the accident. She continued to keep her followers updated through social media posts, documenting the challenges of having to adapt to a new life almost overnight, and the affect that a disability can have on a person.The Sky is Not The Limit relays the first year of Amanda's new life, revisiting her Facebook posts and reflecting on how she felt at the time, discussing how her life has changed with a disability, as well as how other people's attitudes towards her may have shifted.
