It's just a tremendous, heart-wrenching story in all of its facets. From the athletes who have the TBIs to those who tragically lost their lives doing what they loved to do and lived for, it's just a fascinating piece.

From the athletes who have the TBIs to those who tragically lost their lives doing what they loved to do and lived for, it's just a fascinating piece. The love among Kevin's family is just incredible. The level of understanding that the others display when Kevin expresses his desire to return to the sport is beyond what I suspected any family could conjure but it's to their credit that I think they finally expressed to him how much he mattered to all of them. Beautiful visuals and an amazing soundtrack. Expand

Just an amazing documentary. Very cleverly put together. I'm not interested in snowboarding, but this film is captivating. Very interesting transition from beginning to end.

Informational, riveting, excellent, beautiful, emotional, but gets slightly off topic and drags too long. I still enjoyed it though as one of the greatest documentaries I've seen.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A major argument can be stated that this could be one of the greatest sports documentaries because it goes beyond the limitations of not only the sport dynamic, but the primary plot line as well, self-aware and respectful of its own history. It also allows the viewer to guide to its own conclusions without being immensely spoonfed; the emotive responses vary from happiness to tears, and never feels forced. If it were not for its inability to chronicle the family *truthfully*, this would be the greatest sports documentary ever. But it is still a riveting chronicle of a life in change. Expand

That being said, I fell in love with these people. I have no knowledge of the people in that demographic, but they seem quite wonderful,

This documentary takes you throw the rise, injury and resurrection on one of the best snowboarders of all time. It follows his family, friends, nemesis through the struggle of dealing with the injury that could happen to anyone. Family strength, courage, and dedication abound in this truly lovely documentary.
