Check out the trailer for "Zion," the award-winning documentary short film set to be released on Netflix this Friday.

Directed by Floyd Russ, the short film tells the incredible and inspirational story of Zion Clark, an African-American teenager who competes in high school wrestling, despite having been born without legs.

The film also chronicles Zion's childhood history from being placed in foster care at birth to eventually being adopted as a teen by his foster mother in Ohio.

"Zion," which premiered back in January at Sundance and has since earned a few Jury awards at other film festivals this year, will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix beginning Friday, August 10th.

Zion is a gripping portrait of Zion Clark, a young wrestler born without legs who grew up in foster care. Clark began wrestling in second grade against his able-bodied peers. The physical challenge became a therapeutic outlet and gave him a sense of family. Moving from foster home to foster home, wrestling became the only constant thing in his childhood.
