Maxim is 11 years old and lives in Russia. Like many other young boys and girls at his age, he is a passionate skateboarder. He spends every free minute with his skateboard because he has a plan: When he’s grown up he wants to take part in the Paralympic Games.
When Maxim was two years old he lost both his legs in a fire. His mother gave him up for adoption. The entire country learned about Maxim’s fate. Reports about him were all over Russian media. Finally a Russian/American couple from St. Petersburg came forward and wanted to adopt Maxim. And so Maxim got a new family and learned to laugh again.
