Synopsis

In April 2013, Jeff Bauman made his way to the finish of the Boston Marathon to cheer his ex-girlfriend as she crossed the line. Tragically, a bomb exploded right next to where he was standing, resulting in the amputation of both of his legs. After regaining consciousness, Jeff provided crucial evidence to the police’s bid to track down the bomber, resulting in him being hailed as a national inspiration. In reality, Jeff was battling with PTSD, and increasingly at odds with members of his family wanting to embrace his celebrity, whereas he would rather recuperate alone. Handling its true story with sensitivity, and devoid of any sentiment or judgement, this is an excellently told account of how Jeff learned to live with his wounds and the psychological turmoil inflicted on him, as well as those closest to him.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
