Shooting for this documentary began in 2007 and it was released on DVD in 2013 via self-distribution. It made its way around the globe and was featured in the ReFrame Film Festival in Canada.

This documentary is accurately described as a “shockumentary” in that common notions about disabled people are turned upside down and backwards. Part interview, part music video, part animation, part reenactment, and a dream sequence, this film explores new territory in the realm of human experience; a triumph of the will as Jane overcomes obstacles and destroys popular myths.

Jane Hash was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition which is manifested by extremely brittle bones. At birth, Jane had twenty-six broken bones and was not expected to live 3 hours. By the time she was in high school, she had broken 200 bones.

With a large dose of dark humor, this independent film is full of social taboos and cult-classic potential. It will make you laugh more than it will make you cry but most importantly, it will make you think. By example, Jane teaches viewers that acceptance of self and of others can pave the road to a fantastically outrageous reality that is full of adventure!
