Life was great for Bellarmine College Prep alum Antonio Garcia midway through his final year of high school. His football team had just wrapped up the best season in school history, where he played a key role in the team’s success on offense, defense, and special teams. Even better, he had just committed to the school of his dreams to play his main sport, baseball. All that seemed left to do was take home a ring on the baseball field and graduate high school, when suddenly his life turned upside down, as he suffered an unknown spinal injury three weeks into baseball season. The injury left him paralyzed for a few days, bedridden for weeks, and off the baseball field for the rest of the year.

This documentary chronicles Antonio’s glorious senior football season, his setback and the painful recovery that followed.
