From director Michael Akers (Gone But Not Forgotten, Phoenix) comes a poignant and candid drama about perseverance centered on Morgan, a young man who ends up in a wheelchair after a bicycling accident. Driven and competitive, Morgan has a tough time accepting his new life as a paraplegic, a life that’s often frustrating and lonely. When he meets Dean, who strikes up a friendship with him on the basketball court, Morgan’s zest for life is rekindled, but soon he finds himself reverting to the reckless ways that lead to his debilitating accident in the first place. When Morgan decides to face his demons in the location where his accident took place, he risks not only a broken body, but also a broken heart.
