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.

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.
