Fifteen years of verite footage show the epic rivalry between half-pipe legends Shaun White and Kevin Pearce, childhood friends who become number one and two in the world leading up to the Vancouver Winter Olympics, pushing one another to ever more dangerous tricks, until Kevin crashes on a Park City half-pipe, barely surviving. As Kevin recovers from his injury, Shaun wins Gold. Now all Kevin wants to do is get on his snowboard again, even though medics and family fear this could kill him. We also celebrate Sarah Burke who crashed in Park City and died January 19, 2012.

He was awesome and his brother was great as well

Tear jerker!! Kevin spoke at a conference for Neuro Critical Care nurses that I attended. He was awesome and his brother was great as well! He gives hope to anyone who suffers from a traumatic brain injury!

Best Documentary I've Seen in a Long Time

I'm wasn'tt a huge fan of snowboarding, and I didn't even know who Kevin Pearce was before I watched this documentary. I'm still bout sure about snowboarding, but I am now a huge fan of Kevin Pearce. If you can watch this movie and not feel like you've had your heart torn out through your throat, you aren't alive. To say I highly recommend it, would be an understatement.

And I also appreciated seeing the great support he received from his family

After receiving a TBI myself, I appreciated watching this documentary of Kevin Pearce and the highs and lows of his recovery. It is a tough road back to normalcy but found his story to be inspiring, even for those of us who are not athletes. And I also appreciated seeing the great support he received from his family...that is vital.

The other side of extreme sports

Great to see a family come together to get through challenges in life. Seeing the pain, suffering and trauma of extreme sports was eye opening. You see the amazing things people do but don't realize it's not all the perfectly executed jump, trick and flip. Seeing the impact of head injuries makes you think twice.

A must watch if you have kids in sports especially winter sports

I think that it was instrumental in showing Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) from winter sports. A lot of focus goes into NFL players and the Vets that have, people forget TBI can happen in many other ways . It was great in showing the many aspects of the recovery process.
