“Half Dollar Life”… is a gem and that it is not just about living with a disability. Keoki has cast a wide net in this coming of age story about Kai, a man with Cerebral Palsy and Chelsea, a non-disabled waitress. With a museum as a backdrop Kai describes his struggle to walk. This is in the past and can be left on the museum steps. He has become a kind and sensitive person who loves to teach. By contrast, Chelsea’s struggle is current and unfolds in the everyday world of home, restaurant, and automobile as she deals with a hostile ‘friend’ and the loss of her mother. A conflict develops and the metaphor of the half dollar works well as both Kai and Chelsea reach for wholeness with forgiveness and love. This is a wonderful movie that leaves the audience feeling good about Kai and Chelsea and optimistic about mankind.

I really enjoyed the movie and found that it would be most helpful and relevant for a number of people that we support here in Strafford County. I plan to add it to our lending library and promise to check in periodically on your website to see if you have new projects…….Thanks so much for sharing an element of what must have been a very personal story.
