DIRECTOR / PRODUCER: AMANDA KAYE
The Real McCoy is a documentary about Damian McCoy's tragic past and his determination to use his life in a positive way by becoming an actor.

NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
"As a director and producer, I feel the voices of people like Damian McCoy are meant to not only make us be aware of other people's stories but to create a conversation and reflection on the position people with disabilities have within our society and why they shouldn't be dismissed. They are a force of such strong will power and resilience, we will be inspired to live better lives ourselves." - Amanda Kaye
