AN ACCIDENTAL LIFE tells the story of climber Quinn Brett, who suffered a horrific fall in Yosemite at the height of her athletic career that left her paralyzed from the waist down and forced to question her identity and community. Soon after her accident, Quinn’s relationship ends, throwing her into a lonely place where she wonders if this new version of herself is lovable - until an expected romantic connection reveals that she is indeed still Quinn Brett, and nothing can take that away from her. Over the course of the film, viewers watch Quinn's raw recovery and return to the world she almost lost as she eventually comes to accept the things she cannot change.
