The resilience of the human spirit and the restorative power of true love serve as the focal points of this documentary, which follows the recovery of gifted guitarist, Jason Crigler, who was performing a concert in Manhattan when he suddenly collapsed from a massive brain hemorrhage. According to his doctors, it was highly unlikely that Crigler would ever even walk again, much less play guitar. But then something remarkable happened: Crigler’s wife and the couple’s devoted family decided not to accept the doctor’s prognosis and to take Jason’s recovery into their own hands.
