Film-maker Lucy Walker's documentary about snowboarder Kevin Pearce and his fight back from a career-threatening injury. Spurred on to try out ever more intricate manoeuvres by his fierce rivalry with Shaun White in the run-up to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Kevin Pearce is left with a life-threatening brain injury when he suffers a training accident at Park City, Utah, in 2009. Determined to help him through the tortuous recovery period, Kevin's family wastes no time in rallying round to help him to rebuild his life. But when he insists on defying medical advice and attempting a return to competitive snowboarding, Kevin soon discovers he has a fight on his hands, as his family closes ranks and refuses to let him take the risk.
