‘Angie: Tales of Determination’ follows the life of Angie Sandow; born with multiple congenital birth defects, the most noticeable being her right arm and hand; she overcame adversity and as a result of the word “can’t” not being in her vocabulary, has accomplished a variety of things including playing lead guitar in her AC/DC Tribute band Bare Rump.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer and completing all treatment, Angie decided to live out her dream to start riding her own motorcycles.
