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

I found this film through Make A Hero - its really inspiring and I learned a great deal about adaptive sports.
8 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film really moved me. I felt that the individual's whose stories have been told here, are going to go a long way in helping people see each other with equality. Beyond the surface of things, there is no difference between somehow with a physical disability and someone without; we all have the power and ability to do some amazing things if we put our minds and our heart's to it. After watching The Movement, I learned about adaptive sports and adaptive sports groups. I did not know about these aspect of sports and of life until I saw this film. I also checked out the website for Make A Hero.org and found that they are still active and are working on more movies. They have my support, and after watching The Movement, I'm sure you will feel the same way.
