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

Loved The Movement
9 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I learned about this film from a friend who has a disability and found this film to be helpful and inspiring. I recommend anyone to watch this movie. It shows some very inspiring people finding freedom through adaptive sports. I love it. Rick Finkelstein is a guy who has made it through a lot. I'm glad I found out about this movie and about their group. Very inspiring. You should watch :) Skiing must be really hard to do on one ski. Most people in a wheelchair aren't used to this. But they make it if they try. I want to go try skiing now and I have never done it. So cool. This movie is great, loved it! If there are any more films out there like this one I would watch. I support helping people with disabilities and making more people see each other as equals.
