Pat Williams is a legally blind woman, who struggles to bridge her place between the world of the sighted and that of the visually impaired. As a program support assistant at the New York City center for Veterans Affairs, Pat has found ways to adapt her work environment to her own needs. Yet at times it is necessary for her to receive help from family for daily needs. For five years of Pat’s life, she was afraid to go outside because of her condition. Throughout the film, Pat works to strike a balance between relying on family and remaining a fiercely independent woman who does not let her disability define her.
