Puddles in my Head is a story about community, love, family, friends, pain, confusion, anger, joy, struggle, redemption, and how it all intertwines within the disabled community. It’s really about our emotions — the ones that connect us all — regardless of our abilities, where we’re from, or where we’re at.
