Beyond the Chair is the story of an ordinary man, Andrew Shelley, living the American Dream. He leads a successful life as an engineer and a single bachelor. Just beneath the surface, he is unhappy with the expectations and perceptions that society puts on him. He sees his life as the result of choices laid out by everyone but himself. It's time to become the man he wants to be, so he sets out on a backpacking journey across the world to find out exactly who he is. But there is one catch; Andrew is all but confined to a wheelchair because of an affliction with Muscular Dystrophy, a disease that has deteriorated his body down to 90 lbs. How will he survive this journey? Maybe more importantly, will he find what he is searching for before it is too late?
A special screening of the feature documentary Beyond The Chair will be held at the Rave 18 Los Angeles. With special guests Adventurer Andrew Shelley and Producers Dusty Duprel and Rachel Pandza.
