In this short film, Elijah tells the story of his dad, Matthew, who is a "pretty normal dad" but unlike most other dads, he has a significant disability. Born with cerebral palsy and unable to control most of his body, Matthew with the use of a wheelchair, a pointer on a helmet with a letter board, and the exceptional help of others, has become a university instructor, has several degrees from Berkley, Ca., and is father to a 14 year old boy.
