Abstract:

This remarkable program, hosted and narrated by Christopher Reeve, records Martin Schmieg's odyssey of despair and triumph. From the truck crash that broke his neck, to his fight for life in an acute care spinal ward, to his courageous struggle to transcend his injury, Martin's story is counterpointed by details of Reeve's own experiences. In addition, the documentary showcases new technologies to enhance mobility and presents research by some of the world's leading scientists-including the work of Dr. Lars Olson, who succeeded in enabling rodents with severed spinal cords to walk.
