    a film by Marina Julienne et Raphaël Girardot

    Infrarouge - France 2

    Victim of an accident, “new” quadriplegics realize the inadequacy of the society faced with the handicap. They then seek to recover their motor functions by all means, by experimenting electrical stimulations, exoskeletons and other prostheses. Some of these volunteer are training for the first international competition for disabled people equipped with bionic prostheses – the Cybathlon. Day after day, they discover and discuss the narrow border between the “repaired man” to whom they aspire, and “the increased man” desired by a society of performance and transcendence.
