Director Statement Having met Samuel a few months back while he was passionately racing in Rwanda, it was intriguing to me when I learnt that he was back on the bike even after breaking one of his legs during the race. From there, I personally longed to watch such a story on screen and that's basically how and why I decided to embark on this project. The entire filming process was thought-provoking to me. Listening to Samuel tell of his ordeal and express his perspective changed how I view life and situations - and I hope that this film will have a similar effect to everyone who comes across it.
