The first thing you notice when meeting Martha Mason is the bright yellow iron lung that encases her body and helps her breathe, just as it has since 1948 when she contracted polio at the age of 11. She has lived in this life-saving machine longer than anyone else in the world. At first, the image and sound of the iron lung are shocking. Soon after talking with Martha, however, the massive, metal cylinder becomes inconsequential because it is so greatly exceeded by her spirit. Her personal story has long inspired her friends and neighbors, but Martha has been a private person for most of her life. This film tells Martha’s story in the context of Lattimore, the little town and relationships there that have nurtured her.
