Amputee football transforms players from marginalised figures into examples of courage and determination. We relate the rapid emergence of the game in Liberia as a case study of Africa as a whole. An interview with Robert Karloh, President of the African Amputee Association, to explain the importance of the game, not just for the players but for the community as a whole. Then we focus on Liberian International Dennis Parker's turbulent life and see how football transformed his life from misery into a positive example to others. Players may have lost limbs through very different and terrible situations, but football offers them all the same thing: a chance for glory in The Amputee World Finals.
