ShAFF presents the multi award winning film AN ACCIDENTAL LIFE. After surviving a near fatal climbing accident, speed climber Quinn Brett must not only rediscover how to use her body without the use of her legs, but also how to access the joy that is so central to her being.

AN ACCIDENTAL LIFE tells the story of climber Quinn Brett, who suffered a horrific fall in Yosemite at the height of her athletic career that left her paralyzed from the waist down and forced to question her identity and community. Soon after her accident Quinn’s relationship ends throwing her into a lonely place where she wonders if this new version of herself is lovable - until an expected romantic connection reveals that she is indeed still Quinn Brett, and nothing can take that away from her.
