Just because someone reckons you can't do something, doesn't mean it can't be done.

In Six Percent, Dave Jacka tells the story of his journey from immobility in an ICU ward following a devastating motorbike accident, to realising his boyhood dream of learning to fly.

Upon discovering he has six percent of his muscles functioning, nineteen-year-old Dave becomes obsessed with finding out what six percent actually means. Does it mean he will have six percent of a life?

Six Percent takes us inside Dave's mind as he reckons with his fate and begins to reimagine his future. Overcoming despair, daily frustrations and interminable obstacles, Dave's perseverance and philosophy of 'doing it differently' enable him to progress from relearning how to feed himself to competing at the 1996 Paralympics. He then defies expectations and realises his ultimate dream-learning to fly.

Told with humour and insight, Six Percent is a remarkable story of tenacity and resilience-and what is possible when we think laterally and dare to dream.
