"Terry" tells the story of 21-year old amputee Terry Fox who attempted to run across Canada with only one leg. Unfortunately, he only made it to Thunder Bay, Ontario when he died, one month before his 23nd birthday yet his memories will live on forever in the hearts of Canadians everywhere.
On April 12, 1980, Terry Fox set out on the Marathon of Hope and raised the spirit of a nation. This is his story.

Did You Know?
In one scene, Bill Vigars refers to Canada Day, the July 1 holiday commemorating the Confederation of Canada. This may be perceived as an anachronism, as the holiday was not officially known as Canada Day until 1982; in 1980, its official name was still Dominion Day. However, it should be noted that informally, many Canadians were already referring to the holiday as Canada Day; the official name change *reflected* an already existing usage. See more
