The second of six thought-provoking documentaries exploring issues central to the lives of disabled people.

If society disables people as much as the disabilities themselves, do different societies disable people in different ways? This was the fascinating question behind a video letter exchange set up between two groups of disabled people, with individuals in Norwich posing questions for their counterparts in Suva, capital of Fiji in the South Pacific. The replies from the people of Suva are revealing about cultural attitudes to disability in Fiji and the problems currently facing disabled people there, but their stories also create a powerful impression of optimism and self-reliance. As the correspondence between Suva and Norwich develops, Over the Edge shows that, despite their very different cultures, the two groups have a great deal in common.
