WXXI is pleased to present SOAR Friday, January 27, 2017 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV. SOAR explores the inspiring relationship between two sistersâ€”both dancers: Kiera Brinkley, a quadruple amputee who lost her limbs at age two, and Uriah Boyd, who was born a month before her sister contracted pneumococcal sepsis. Featuring beautiful and moving dance sequences, the documentary celebrates the extraordinary ways that Kiera has learned to adaptâ€”as a dancer, choreographer and medical assistant. It also reveals the deeply loving relationship between the sisters and how Uriah dedicated her life to helping Kiera adjust.
