Storyline

In 2004 Rick Finkelstein was paralyzed in a ski accident on Aspen Mountain. With a severed spine and severe internal trauma, he wasn't expected to live. Six years, nine surgeries, and a lifetime of rehab later, cameras captured his dramatic return to Aspen. Even with the latest gear, expert coaching, and mentorship from the sport's pioneers, Rick faced a daunting challenge with many risks and no guarantees. Rick's friend, witness to the crash: 'It wasn't until later that I completely broke down. You realized that it's just so fragile.' Narrator: 'Our movement started with the word never. 'You'll never walk again... You'll never see... You'll never live to age five.' Never? Our heroes refused to accept that word.' Written by Anonymous

Great Movie On Adaptive Sports, Inspiring
8 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great movie that is not only educational but inspiring. The stories of the five disabled athletes are interesting. The movie revolves around the return of Rick Finkelstein to the ski slopes of Aspen. The film makers did a great job of bringing all five stories together to show perspectives on adaptive sports. The stories of these athletes are not only inspiring, but very impressive as well. They prove that having a disability isn't the end of anything. Great film that shows a whole new world of adaptive sports. The film making is also impressive with sites and sounds of the mountains in great quality. The soundtrack is also very impressive.
