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

A truly inspirational, eye-opening film
9 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The message in "The Movement: One Man Joins an Uprising," a combination of different plot lines of individuals overcoming physical limitations and experiencing the rewarding experience of sport, is quite unique and profound. Not only does this film inspire its audience to pursue in the face of any challenge, but it also provides insight to the world of disabled sports-- a realm that is not necessarily that well-known, but is an extremely important opportunity provider for those individuals that struggle with physical disabilities. Furthermore, the cinematography and musical score are enjoyable and extremely well-taken, and they boost the already profound storyline.
