Atlanta-based actor, Daryl "Chill" Mitchell, who was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident, is among those featured in the film.

"I know able bodied people that need a push and not only to learn something but to give them some incentive," said Mitchell. "There's a lot of people who've got ears but can't hear, they've got eyes and can't see, got legs and can't walk."

The film features Jamie Foxx, Ben Affleck and Geena Davis.

The director says the documentary may even become an Oscar contender.
