Storyline

Based on the real story of Tom and Nicola Ray from Rutland. Their perfect life is totally ruined in a single moment after Tom had developed sepsis. While her husband was in coma, Nicola gave birth to their second child on the other side of the same hospital. Within a matter of days, sepsis would rob Tom of both his arms and legs, and left his face severely disfigured. As an ordinary man, Tom never put himself at risk -- he just woke up two months later in a nightmare, a face-off quadruple amputee. This incredible story of survival shows what can be overcome when love is unconditional. Written by MAthePA

Trivia

Despite the obvious financial incentive to shoot the film in Ireland, the production team ensured it was shot in Rutland to ensure that the story was told in the actual locations. The junction at which the ambulance hesitates is the actual junction from the original journey and the tiny home exterior was Tom and Nic Ray's actual former home. See more »

I've come across this film by chance, on a Sunday afternoon, looking for something to unwind with. Very difficult to watch , very 'deep' but absolutely brilliant and truly inspirational
