Storyline

Morgan comes home after a tragic accident in a bikers race leaves him paraplegic, binding him to wheelchair use for the rest of his life. He tries to stay positive, not letting the accident end his life, but deep-rooted feelings of uselessness make him rather wish he were dead. Rolling out for beer, he meets Dean, and the two strike up a friendship that quickly develops into a romantic connection. Morgan wants to participate in the biking race in the handicap category, more so because of his competitive nature than to prove his ability. Everyone is against it, even Dean, leading to differences between the two. Finally, he realizes that he's at fault and makes peace with himself. Written by Ronnie / edited by statmanjeff

The little movie that couldn't...
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

A great idea with a good cinematography but totally destroyed by dialogs and actors. This could have been a very interesting movie, and you can tell that if the people behind it would have taken the time to really correct the script and make a descent cast. It would be a 10 stars movie.

The dialogs were totally inappropriate, didn't help at all to the development of the story, out of place and tacky. ACtor didn't help at all totally forced actors with no emotion what so ever.

Gay movies are an underground topic which is hard to find this days, with just a few exceptions here and there. I totally support this kinds of films and it would be interesting that more people started giving the appropriate attentions to this films.
