About the Movie

Former South African Springbok captain, Joost van der Westhuizen is no stranger to the spotlight. From fame on the rugby field to a scandalous fall from grace, his life has been public property. Now he tackles a disease which has no regard for his past triumphs, and again he lays himself bare to the world - fighting for survival, for his family and for others affected by Motor Neuron Disease. A compelling tale of redemption, set against the backdrop of sporting glory, this is the story of a modern day warrior forced to face his own human frailty. He discovers that beyond fame and success, lies the true wealth of life and shows that within a ravaged body can surge the spirit of a survivor.
