Twelve-year-old Emmie is working to raise money for a tricked-out wheelchair to get serious about WCMX, when a mishap on a poorly designed ramp at school throws her plans into a tailspin. Instead of replacing the ramp, her school provides her with a kind but unwelcome aide and, seeing a golden media opportunity, launches a public fundraiser for her new wheels. Emmie loves her close-knit rural town, but she can’t shake the feeling that her goals - and her choices - suddenly aren’t hers anymore. With the help of her best friends, Emmie makes a plan to lift her dreams off the ground - and show her community what she wants, what she has to give, and how ready she is to do it on her own terms.
