The Far Side of the Glass

A boy in a wheelchair has a wish to be freed of his condition and given back the use of his legs. When his mother takes him to a place away from ordinary life, he is left waiting for a few minutes, and he passes the time in a journey through his imagination. But in his brief excursion, he finds a magical moment of liberation — a fantastical encounter, where anything can happen, and dreams just might come true.
