Paralyzed after a near-fatal car accident, Jessica discovers that her rehab training is part of a plan to mold her into a lethal assassin.
A special “work in progress” sneak peek for the cast and crew of COLLISION – the labor of love of actress/activist Tiffany Giddes. Tiffany’s mission is to change the types of roles she gets called in on and how producers/casting directors/filmmakers think of Actors with Disabilities. She brought together screenwriter Katherine Beattie and Alexis Ostrander, the director of the new feature doc Defining Beauty: Ms. Wheelchair America, to create these action-packed Chick Assassin on Wheels characters.
