Storyline

Myron Yoder's Indiana family always was proud of eldest son Seth, a sports prodigy, but most attention goes to younger Justin, whose spina bifida condition means a wheelchair and constant, frantic care. During make-up chores for endangering grumpy neighbor Vic Sauder's sports car, Justin discovers a sport he finally hopes to excel in, soap box cart racing, and gets highly experienced Vic and pa to help and coach him. That proves promising and dangerous, but also puts unbearable stress on the family cohesion as Seth now feels cruelly shoved aside. Written by KGF Vissers

Uplifting movie with outstanding cast
13 November 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Justin Yoder (Frankie Muniz) wants desperately to win a trophy. He wants to compete, to succeed, to win. One problem. Justin is in a wheelchair.

While his disability has hampered him for years, Justin finally finds something that he can do--soapbox derbies. After talking his parents into it, he launches into a whole new stage of his life, finding that he is good at something, and he might even have a chance at a trophy.

This movie caught my eye one day a little over a year ago on the Disney channel. I watch 'Malcolm in the Middle' and quickly recognized Frankie Muniz. However, it was not him I came away loving, it was Patrick Levis. Patrick plays Seth Yoder, Justin's older brother. I have a brother of my own with a disability, so I understood every single one of Seth's feelings and frustrations. The scene in which Seth breaks down and spills his feelings to his father was especially poignant. Thank you, Patrick, for such a beautiful and understanding performance. This movie is careful not to deny the truths of being a sibling to someone with a disability--a rare and wonderful thing for films.

All in all, a magnificent piece of work, especially for a made-for-TV movie.
