  • Eric Stoltz is Joel Garcia, a talented young writer who awakens from a hiking accident to find that he is paralyzed from the waist down. In order to put his life back together, he must graduate from a rehabilitation center. There he meets ladies' man Raymond (Wesley Snipes) and racist biker Bloss (William Forsythe), both recovering from similar accidents. As the three men strive to reconcile the bitterness they each feel, they become friends and learn to live with their reality. Co-Director and screenwriter Neal Jimenez's (RIVER'S EDGE) script is loosely based on his own experiences. Winner of the Audience Award and the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
