The Movie
Accompanied by his eleven best friends, Darius Weems, a fifteen-year-old living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), leaves home for the first time in his life. The rowdy crew sets a course for California where they hope to convince MTV to customize Darius’s wheelchair on the hit show, Pimp My Ride. Along the way, they find joy, brotherhood and the knowledge that life, even when imperfect, is always worth the ride. Darius Goes West has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people of all ages all around the world.
