Going the Distance: Journeys of Discovery

L. Brown, David
Genre: 
Four survivors take us inside the experience of traumatic brain injury (TBI) to reveal their personal stories of devastation, heroism and hope. A corporal in the U.S. Marines, Jason Poole suffered massive head injuries in a roadside bomb in Iraq. Co-ed Kristen Collins was severely injured in a motorcycle accident while away at college. Pre-med student Jay Waller fell victim to a savage road-rage beating while on vacation. Six-year old Ian McFarland survived the car crash that left him an orphan. Along their paths to recovery, these four people relive the dramatic accidents that almost took their lives, learn how to walk, talk and live again, and face the most daunting challenge of all—reinventing themselves—frequently with humor and always with heart. In spite of enduring hardship, including life-long cognitive and emotional challenges, each does succeed in envisioning and achieving a new dream on their life path. Awarded Most Inspirational Film at the Oregon Documentary Film Festival.
