All of have the ability to pull off some pretty incredible things, the difference is, some people are afraid of taking that first step.
In the heart of South West Tasmania's magnificent World Heritage wilderness stands Federation Peak, one of Australia's most challenging mountains. Against all the odds, Warren Macdonald spends 28 days hiking to and climbing the peak, becoming the first double above-knee amputee ever to do so.
Walking away from the social constraints so readily applied to the "disabled", and journeying into wild nature, Warren casts off the shackles and goes in search of the personal freedom he enjoyed before his horrific accident two years before.
The Second Step is the profound story of one mans extraordinary courage and determination to take back control of his life.
