Inspiring story, excellent cast
23 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story is terrific for a TV movie and should have been made into a feature length film. Peter Berg is just excellent as the fallen football hero who is given a second chance at life and, with the help of the almighty God, walks just 3 months after breaking his neck.

I wish this movie was on video. It should be in everyone's video library!
