Beatrice Vio started fencing on her feet when she was five years old. A bout with meningitis at eleven not only left her with all four of her limbs amputated, but it completely shifted her relationship with the sport she loves. With the unconditional support of her family, Beatrice proves her adherence to the circumstances by becoming a world champion at the age of nineteen. BEATRICE is a window into the extraordinary life of a young woman fighting for what matters most to her, all the while defying the limitations and expectations of the human condition.
