Inspirational true story
26 August 2017 | by bgrbiz-20279See all my reviews

What a well made documentary this is. We are hearing stories of other athletes being motivated to succeed themselves after seeing this moving true story. Katie Bender and Leo Baker have done an incredible job following the path of Lydia Lassila who is a very determined yet lovable personality. We can't wait to see where this story goes because it is not over yet!
