“Quid Pro Quo” is a psychological thriller about Issac, a paraplegic and popular New York City public radio reporter who is investigating a story from an anonymous source about a man who walked into a hospital demanding that his leg be amputated.

Issac meets a mysterious femme fatale (played by Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga) while working on this story and discovers a curious subculture of “wannabes” — nondisabled people who seek to transform themselves by amputation.

For more information on the free, public screening, call the Disability Studies Program at 419.530.7244.
