Watch Me Fly

Watch Me Fly


When Anu Francis faced discrimination that derailed her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian, she turned to sport to build back up her self-worth and find community. After diving into para-triathlon, Anu has emerged as a leading figure in the global para-sport community and has been selected to compete at the Paris Paralympic Games in 2024. But her journey to finding a career as an elite athlete raises a poignant question: Is becoming a Paralympian the default career for people with disabilities?

Through her new sporting career on a world stage, Anu challenges these ideas and advocates for a broader spectrum of opportunities for individuals with disabilities. ‘Watch Me Fly’ is a story of resilience and self-discovery and follows Anu as she navigates life with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Dystonia, while challenging society's views on disability.
