AS PROS­THETIC legs are loaded into a 4x4 and rid­ers miss­ing limbs rev up their Com­mu­nist-era mo­tor­bikes, one-armed biker Andy ex­claims: ‘We must look like the cir­cus has come to town!’

This unique group of trav­ellers – six peo­ple with dif­fer­ent dis­abil­i­ties – are on an epic jour­ney of al­most 900 miles through Viet­nam, a coun­try still suf­fer­ing the legacy of war with a high in­ci­dence of dis­abil­ity from un­ex­ploded ord­nance.

Al­though shad­owed by film and safety crews, the group are in charge of their own destiny as they nav­i­gate the route in a coun­try ill-equipped for dis­abil­ity.
