Stories about breaking out, breaking free, and bringing people together through the power of action, strength, hope and joy.

For Maggie and Febby, the bicycle is much more than a toy. Growing up in rural Malawi, they struggled to make the long trek to school—a journey that was made all the more difficult when they both became teen mothers. Now, two wheels are helping them return to school and build better futures for both themselves and their daughters.

About the Directors:

Brothers Jacob Seigel Brielle and Isaac Seigel-Boettner were brought home from the hospital in bike trailers. It was love at first ride. They grew up in the saddle, leading youth bike trips with their family everywhere from British Columbia to Ireland to Rwanda. These travels introduced them to storytellers who they never would have met from behind a car window. Today, the brothers run Pedal Born Pictures, a media storytelling company dedicated to shedding light on these narratives often hiding in plain sight.
