Just Be Frank
Cast & Credits
Fulfilling your dreams in New York City takes resilience and courage. Just Be Frank is an inspiring portrait of Frank Senior, a blind jazz singer who transcends his personal limitations in pursuit of his dreams. Navigating the streets of New York with his cane and then challenged by the arrival of his new dog, we see the hazards that make each block a challenge. Frank's humour and optimism reveal that it is one's attitude that makes the difference between disability and opportunity.
