Paralyzed in a car accident, James is amazed to see the driver walking down the street - he should be dead. The driver's sister joins him to investigate and together they discover another driver - one who fled the scene. Treated as a mate, not an invalid, James now comes to terms with life.
James, paralized in a car accident, is now in a wheelchair and he's furious. The teenage driver of the car that hit him was killed in the accident, so James can't believe his eyes when he sees him walking down the street. Despite his wheels, he decides to play detective and the driver's sister joins him in the hunt for the 'dead man walking'. They discover an unsuspected co-driver who fled the scene of the accident, leaving the dead teenager to take the blame. The girl takes no notice of James's wheelchair, treating him as she would any other mate, and so he begins to accept things and live a life again.
