Max is all excited that a new community playground is opening up. His two best friends, Sophia and Xavier, meet him at the ribbon cutting ceremony as they wait earnestly to enter the playground. Once the ribbon is cut, Max pushes his wheelchair with his friends to check out the new equipment. Suddenly, Max says, "Oh No!, my wheelchair is stuck in the wood chips". Max sweats profusely, pushes hard his wheelchair to try to move safely across the flooring to no avail. With tears dripping down his face, his father pushes him out of the playground to go home. Sophia and Xavier feel angry that the parent committee built an inaccessible playground where their best friend can't play with them. Max is determined to join his friends in the playground as he faces bullying from two children and learns the true meaning of friendship.
