Twenty-something and wheelchair-bound Jo's life is turned upside-down when her mother’s boyfriend moves in. When Jo's poor judgment causes a serious accident, she is wrongly placed in an asylum under Chicago’s cruel and archaic ‘Ugly Law’, where deformed and unsightly people must stay out of sight from the public. Her treatment and subsequent escape emboldens her to fight to repeal the unjust law. Its 1974 overturning remains a milestone in the Civil Rights movement for the disabled.
