And that is exactly what happens to firefighter Jeff Elliott and his wife Ruth who are living their dream in the golden Midwest; high school sweethearts, married with two beautiful and healthy children, family farm, horses, sports, church groups, the whole American Dream come true. And one winters day, teenage son Eric "Hoovey" Elliott collapses at high school basketball practice, is rushed to the hospital, and the doctors find a tumor the size of an orange at the base of his brain. They're down to hours-if surgery that risks the boy's ability to walk, talk, and perhaps even survive is not performed immediately, Hoovey's young life will end before it truly even begins. In a grueling 8-hour procedure, the tumor is removed. And he survives. But for the Elliott family, life and dreams will never be the same. Hoovey has to teach himself to walk again, to read again, to even see straight with two unbalanced eyes, covered... Written by James Barnes

Great Movie that Inspires Right Thinking
3 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Though some of the sports scenes are not as convincing, the story line, interactions and dialog are. This based-on-a-true-story movie takes you on quite a journey that is safe and entertaining for the whole family. It will also challenge you to think more carefully about your life and inspire you to look for, and trust, how providence is working out the direst of circumstances in your, and your family's, life. This movie may not be 100% 'Hollywood quality', but it is very close. The acting, cinematography and screenplay is excellent. Only some of the sports scenes could have used a bit more authenticity, but it is easily overlooked because of the excellence throughout the rest of the movie. Well worth the watch and the purchase!!
