Will Lautzenheiser was chasing the loves of his life. A year into a promising relationship, he landed a dream job teaching film. After his first two classes, he visited the hospital for a persistent pain that, unbeknownst to him, was being caused by a deadly infection. To save his life, doctors amputated his arms and legs. Told in deeply personal and observational detail, STUMPED reveals how Will copes with the loss of his filmmaking career by pursuing stand-up comedy; navigates an evolving relationship with his enduringly supportive partner Angel, who becomes Will’s lover and caregiver; and gradually transforms, physically and spiritually, to amass the courage to try an experimental arm transplant procedure. Filmed over four years, STUMPED explores the human spirit and our willingness to overcome challenges when daring to see what lies ahead.
