Storyline

No parent should have to bury their child, but that was the reality that Dick and Josephine Weil faced when their adopted son Gabe was diagnosed with Duchenne's muscular dystrophy. By the age of ten, Gabe was wheelchair bound. By the time he was a teenager, he required a full time caretaker. Despite his grim diagnosis, Gabe made it his life goal to get a college degree, knowing that such an accomplishment was more than most could expect of him. In December of 2013, Gabe graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, fulfilling that dream. Nearly simultaneously, doctors informed him that he had been misdiagnosed all along, and as such, that he might live into his 50s. Although this news was overwhelmingly positive, it presented a surprising obstacle. Gabe did not have any long-term goals. He was forced to rethink his life from scratch.

Incredibly heartfelt, funny and inspiring
6 July 2018 | by paulgcraneSee all my reviews

"Gabe" is an amazing documentary about a young man named Gabe, who at a very young age was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The film is also about his close relationship with the Director of the film, Luke Terrell. Luke and Gabe have a beautiful and organic friendship that is genuine and inspiring. This is Luke's first feature documentary and I can't wait to see what he does next because he is an incredibly talented and compassionate storyteller.
