International disability advocate Cara Elizabeth Yar Khan, deep in the throes of an aggressive, fatal muscle-wasting disease and no longer able to walk unassisted, embarks on a 12-day expedition through the Grand Canyon. "Facing the Falls" is a story of fear, adrenaline, ambition, determination, hubris, courage, and perseverance against the odds.

This film is accompanied by audio description, a form of narration used to provide information surrounding key visual elements in a media work for the benefit of blind and visually impaired consumers.
