King Gimp

This documentary examines the challenges faced by Dan Keplinger, an artist living in Towson, MD, suffering from cerebral palsy. Neighbors gave him the nickname King Gimp because he loved to roll his wheelchair downhill. This film begins showing Dan as a 13-year old teenager, who at the time could neither speak nor dress himself, but could paint using a brush attached to his head. He is shown advancing as he eventually moves into his first independent living situation, hosts his first art show, develops his first friendship with a female, attends his high school prom and eventually graduates from college.
