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 Anonymous

A truly remarkable man with a remarkable family
22 January 2013 | by FlangSee all my reviews

Being a huge music fan, I knew of Jason Becker but was never a big fan of the 80s neoclassical metal genre and was not familiar with his music. Now I realize what a remarkably talented musician he is. At the age of 20, he was following in Steve Vai's footsteps with David Lee Roth. Fortunately his musical talents extend far beyond fretboard dexterity; he is a very gifted composer and is able to continue using that gift. The documentary provides a window into how Becker copes with ALS and how his family and friends both support him and receive inspiration from him. I found this to be a moving documentary, and really wanted to be able to tell Becker what an amazing individual he is.
