Storyline

Frank Shankwitz, an Arizona motorcycle cop with a troubled past, survives a near-fatal accident during a high-speed pursuit. As part of Frank's rehabilitation, police chief Sgt. Eddie Newman asks him to spend time with a terminally ill little boy, Michael, whose dying wish is to be a Highway Patrol motorcycle officer. To Michael, Frank is his hero, and an unlikely friendship is born. The boy inspires Frank to follow a new path, which leads to the creation of the Make-A-Wish foundation. Written by Theo Davies

Goofs

Frank is shown wearing his uniform while at the hospital and also after being released. Hospitals, especially in a case involving a serious injury, would require the patient to change into hospital clothing. His uniform would have been cut off of him by either the EMS medics or the emergency room staff. See more »

One of those movies you cry on. It's like lump is stuck on your throat. Very emotional, very sad movie with beautiful end. A very special movie, you will not forget for a long time. Deserve more than 10, and yes, it's worth watching.
