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

Trivia

Frank Shankwicz was a consultant on this movie about himself, and convinced local Prescott AZ biz owners to donate location shots free of charge. Az has no film credit system so they were on a limited budget and Frank wanted it shot in his home town. See more »

Way better than expected.
10 September 2019 | by heavypicklesandketchupSee all my reviews

With a rating just above a 6 I was hesitant, the short description was terrible, and some of the reviews were "harsh". Now I know what an internet troll is. What a wonderful film about a story that absolutely needed to be told. I didn't get the beginning until the end, as I didn't research the story ahead of time. All the characters were solid, relatable and well acted. Knocked off one star because of some scenes that I am sure Frank wanted included but didn't add anything to the story. Just Wow, what a great/sad/uplifting/film. Best I've seen in years.
