Plot Synopsis

PUSH GIRLS is a reality series that follows four women who take a matter-of-fact attitude towards their disabilities and are willing to show the world the stark reality of their lives. Angela, Auti, Mia and Tiphany are best friends who, by accident or illness, have been paralyzed from the neck or the waist down. Angela is a down-to-earth, stunningly gorgeous model who has recently become separated from her husband. Auti, a dancer, rapper, actress and all-around powerhouse, is crossing her fingers that, at age 42, she can try for a baby with her husband. Reflective and pragmatic Mia is taking stock of her relationship with her able-bodied boyfriend; a onetime competitive swimmer, she is about to attempt to swim for the first time since high school. Flirty, wisecracking Tiphany is doing some deep soul-searing about her sexuality, settling down and finding her calling in life. While facing modern social issues and everyday life challenges, Angela, Auti, Mia and Tiphany push themselves -- and each other -- to face life head-on and define it on their own terms. Sundance aired a 15-minute sneak preview of the series on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 10pm ET, with the official series premiere on Monday, June 4, 2012 at 10pm ET with back-to-back, half-hour episodes. Season 2, which debuted on Monday, June 3, 2013 at 10pm ET with a one-hour premiere episode, continued to follow Angela, Auti, Mia and Tiphany, as they explored new romances, tackled longstanding issues, mentored newly injured patients, and tried out modern technologies that would allow them to pursue happiness and independence on their own terms. Plus, the four friends continued to cheer on 21-year-old Chelsie Hill, who has been paralyzed for four years and looks to the women for guidance as she moves away from her parents for the first time and finds herself in a serious relationship with an able-bodied man.
