About the Movie

When doctors diagnosed 19-year-old rock star Jason Becker with Lou Gehrig's Disease, they said he wouldn’t live to see his 25th birthday, nor ever make music again. Twenty-two years later, without the ability to move or to speak, Jason is alive and making music with his eyes. This moving doc tells the incredible story of a guitar legend who refuses to give up on his dreams despite the most incredible odds. A FilmBuff Presentation.
