Synopsis

When former NFL defensive back Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS at just 34, they gave him no more than five years to live. Steve embarked on a courageous personal journey to fight the illness, recording a heartfelt video journal along the way as a time capsule for his newborn son.

Using Steve's videos, including emotional footage of Steve's wedding and his career as a football star, as well as personal anecdotes from his wife, family, close friends and caregivers, director Clay Tweel relates the devastating impact of Steve's terminal condition in real time, as Steve has to acclimate himself to a wheelchair when the symptoms of ALS begin to worsen.
