Frank Shankwitz (Andrew Steel), an Arizona motorcycle cop with a troubled past, survives a near-fatal accident during a high-speed pursuit. As part of Frank’s rehabilitation, police chief Sgt. Eddie Newman (Robert Pine) asks him to spend time with a terminally ill little boy, Michael (Christian Ganiere), whose dying wish is to be a Highway Patrol motorcycle officer. To Michael, Frank is a hero and an unlikely friendship is born. The boy inspires him to follow a new path, which leads to Frank falling in love with police secretary Kitty Carlisle (Kirby Bliss Blanton) and to being reunited with his long-lost father, Frank Sr. (Bruce Davison), whom he was separated from as a child by his mother (Fay Masterson). Remembering the small acts of kindness he received as a child by a goodhearted employer (Steven Michael Quezada) and the unconditional love of his father, Frank is inspired to pay it forward by creating the Make-A-Wish foundation. One boy’s wish changed a man. One man’s wish changed the world. Based on the true story of Frank Shankwitz.
