His situation is serious — but the film of his life is seriously funny. Darius Weems was born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), the most fatal childhood genetic disease. We hear how this 15 year old criss-crossed the country with eleven friends in an RV, spreading the word about DMD, about the need for all locations to be wheelchair accessible, and trying to convince an MTV show to ‘pimp his ride’ by customizing his wheelchair with video game consoles, flouresent lights, cellphones, a flatscreen TV and more.
