Further details

Maz has just turned thirty only to become all too aware that not only is she single, but also disabled. Her degenerative disease means she now has to use a motorised wheelchair, which isn't exactly the sexiest accessory a girl can have!

Maz had been cool about the wheelchair, but the prospect of finding a date through the modern minefield of online dating makes her reassess her situation and other people's perceptions of her - can a man really find a woman in a wheelchair attractive? Is she even a pullable commodity?
