Description

Will Lautzenheiser was chasing the loves of his life. A year into a relationship, he landed a dream job teaching film. After his first two classes, he visited the hospital for a pain that, unbeknownst to him, was being caused by a deadly infection. To save his life, doctors amputated his arms and legs. In an instant, Will’s life was derailed. Meanwhile, Brigham and Women’s Hospital is performing experimental transplants that restore bodies to unprecedented levels. Will signs up in the hope of reclaiming his independence. Told as a deeply personal story, "Stumped" reveals how Will copes with his losses by pursuing stand-up comedy; navigates an evolving relationship with his partner Angel, who becomes Will’s lover and caregiver; and gradually transforms, physically and spiritually, with newly transplanted arms. Filmed over four years, "Stumped" explores the human spirit and our willingness to overcome challenges when daring to see what lies ahead.
