No Arms Needed

Total Running Time: 50 minutes

63 year old Marty Ravellette has lived his entire life without arms. His life has not been easy, but Marty has made the most of it. Fiercely independent, Marty runs his own landscaping business in Chapel Hill, NC. On any given day you'll find him driving his van and heading out to plant trees, trim shrubs, mow yards and even run a chainsaw. He does it all with his feet. And he does it remarkably well.

In our one-hour Discovery Channel documentary about Marty, we watch Marty work and take on daily task that most of us take for granted. We learn how Marty became the person he is by tracing his life from his birth in Indiana through his next 16 years at the Good Shepherd's Home in Pennsylvania and on to a variety of jobs, living situations, marriages and adventures.

We follow Marty for six months in his current life and meet his family and friends. We meet Marty's extremely lucid 92-year-old mother and his sister who recount Marty's childhood. We take a trip to Sea World in San Diego, where Marty's mother currently lives, and watch Marty, his mom, his current wife and granddaughter on a typical family outing. We also go with Marty to his family reunion in Indiana and hear stories about his very unusual childhood.

Marty's story is one of strength, perseverance and courage. Viewers will never see the hurdles in their own lives the same way after watching Marty.
