Synopsis: Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg to a blood infection at 9 months old. Rather than letting his disability define him, Vasu has always treated his amputation as a mere hiccup in life. “Out on a Limb” profiles Vasu’s inspiring story and follows him as he ventures deeper into the backcountry to summit peaks, drop into avalanche zones, send cliffs, and ski deep powder lines, all completely unassisted. This outdoor short film leaves audiences wanting more and asks us to reflect on the obstacles in our own lives.
