Synopsis

Directed and produced by Christopher Reeve, The Brooke Ellison Story is a deeply inspiring, often astonishing account of the triumph of the human spirit.

Brooke Ellison became a quadriplegic at age 11 but with determination and the support of her family, she rose above her disability and went on to graduate from Harvard University.

Paralyzed from the neck down by a devastating car accident, eleven-year-old Brooke Ellison and her family fight against all odds to help her live her dreams-including graduating with honors from Harvard University. This moving story is a testament to the courage and determination of an unforgettable young girl and the family that stood by her.

Dove Review

This is a true story about a girl Brooke Ellison who is in a car accident and becomes a paraplegic. It keeps your attention knowing this actually happened.

This is a great family movie. It also teaches you that you can accomplish anything whether you are disabled or not.
