A documentary film about the extraordinary life of a famous, musical prodigy who has been battling against Lou Gehrig's Disease for 22 years. A paralyzing, terminal illness with no real treatment or cure, it has trapped Jason inside of his body for over 15 years; unable to move, unable to speak, and unable to play the instrument which propelled him to international stardom at just 19 years of age. Using an eye communication system invented by his father, Jason is able to escape the confines of his own body and release the music that is trapped inside of his mind. Written by
When director Jesse Vile first approached Jason Becker about doing the film, Becker was reluctant at first because several other people had attempted to make films in the past and gave up. To try and convince him, Vile accessed as much available online content as possible and created a teaser trailer based on his vision for the film. Jason loved it and gave him the green light.

I will say that I thought the movie would make you feel sorry for Jason Becker and his family. Instead, you are hit with this fierce determination, by everyone around him. At first, I cried and felt terrible for Jason, because he was cheated by life. Then I realized, he took this change and adapted to a whole new way of living. His zest (for lack of a better word) is so contagious I can see why he has so many awesome fans and friends. The Becker's are a beautiful group of people. In my opinion they're care of Jason should be used by the ALS foundation. To get a realistic perspective is what made this move so great.. Thank you
