Storyline

Morgan comes home after a tragic accident in a bikers race leaves him paraplegic, binding him to wheelchair use for the rest of his life. He tries to stay positive, not letting the accident end his life, but deep-rooted feelings of uselessness make him rather wish he were dead. Rolling out for beer, he meets Dean, and the two strike up a friendship that quickly develops into a romantic connection. Morgan wants to participate in the biking race in the handicap category, more so because of his competitive nature than to prove his ability. Everyone is against it, even Dean, leading to differences between the two. Finally, he realizes that he's at fault and makes peace with himself. Written by Ronnie / edited by statmanjeff

A bumpy road for the wheelchair guy
5 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just too much anger and "emotion" to be taken seriously. But the topic is intriguing!

Physically damaged Morgan meets emotionally damaged Dean, they date, they love, they decide to live together. All this happens with the full support of Morgan's mother and best friend Darra. Happiness all around!

Morgan, now in a wheelchair, wants to participate in a bike race on a rather dangerous path (the very path that caused his permanent injury). No one supports him so he gets angry and tries to prove himself anyway. Disaster!

He learns his lesson and apologizes for getting angry at everybody. Happiness all around. Nice sweet story, poor acting, but at least this topic was made into a flick!
