It turns out that Will has a life-threatening infection and it becomes necessary to amputate both his arms and legs. Will’s determination to live and humour help him through the crisis. This documentary follows Will’s everyday life after the amputation: his life with his boyfriend, his standup performances and his fight to regain part of his old independence.
